Many club’s will be looking ahead to their plans for this summers transfer window, whenever that might be opening.
Of course, everything stays up in the air right now whilst the world fights a pandemic, but you can be sure that clubs and managers will be using this downtime to assess what targets they need in the summer, and who they might look to sell.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be one of these drawing up his list of potential targets, and he might need to look at a few cheaper options as well as the odd big name or two, taking into account the current economic climate.
However, this could still be seen as a buyers market for that exact same reason.
According to Bleacher Report’s Dean Jones, Lampard is looking at 10 names to fill 5 different positions.
He says Lampard wants a new goalkeeper, left back, centre back, wide forward, and a striker. These are the names on his shortlist below…
Nick Pope, Ben Chilwell, Kalidou Koulibaly, Milan Skriniar, Timo Werner, Jadon Sancho, Mauro Icardi, Moussa Dembele, and he mentions a ‘cheeky bid’ for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Coutinho.
