Lampard keen to sign another striker in the summer

Frank Lampard has to sign a striker who is capable of scoring goals. As the summer transfer window opens the clubs will be looking forward tosigning players. Timo Werner is one of the players that have interests from various clubs. Chelsea currently has Tammy Abraham who is good at forwards but other than him none has raised to their position. Lampard with the upcoming Premier League season and Champions League has to sign a player that has the likes of Diego Costa.

Diego Costa during his time in Chelsea has contributed a lot to the club. He was transferred from Atletico Madrid on 2014 to Stamford Bridge and in the first season in the club,he led them to Premier League victory. In that season under Jose Mourinho, he has scored 21 goals from 37 appearances and became the favourite of the fans. In the second season with Chelsea, he lost his touch.

But under Antonio Conte, he led the team to Premier League victory again and in the season he scored 22 goals from 42 appearances. In 2017, he was transferred back to Atletico Madrid. Conte has given up as he chose him to be not enough for Chelsea. Since his departure, Chelsea has suffered without having a good striker like him. Tammy Abraham is the only one who has performed well.

Alvaro Morata was signed as the replacement of Costa but he wasn’t as good as he was in Real Madrid. He only scored 24 times by having 72 chancesin the game. Michy Batshuayi is another player who was signed by Chelsea as he has also failed to perform. Since his arrival three years ago, he has failed to perform ona regular basis.
Timo Werner is a player who has been exceptionally well in his current team RB Leipzig. He has scored 31 goals from 40 appearances. Even though Liverpool has targeted him, Chelsea has the funds to sign a player like him. Liverpool is currently affected by the financial crisis caused by COVID 19 pandemic. With the current circumstances, Lampard has a major chance of bringing him to Chelsea.
