The transfer ban on Chelsea has been lifted, and the club are expected to make a few additions to their squad before the end of this transfer window.

Is Thomas Lemar the right option for Chelsea?

Lemar was rated at around £90million just a couple of years ago and the drastic drop in his value does not make for a good reading.

However, his potential and quality is undeniable, and a regular place in the first team at Chelsea could certainly bring some of his old form back.

Lampard has Willian and Pedro as senior wingers at the club while Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi bring in youthful exuberance on the flanks.

While Pedro and Willian are not long-term options, Hudson-Odoi and Pulisic are inexperienced and have not been consistent enough.

At £50million, he is certainly a player worth taking the risk as at just 24, he has a lot of time to improve and could fetch a similar amount if sold, even if he does not set the league on fire.

He may not be a player Lampard needs right away but with a chance to snap him up, right on the table, Chelsea may be well advised to get this deal done.
