Chelsea Keen on One Major Signing for the Summer

Chelsea may have swiftly decided to retain Olivier Giroud for another campaign, but Frank Lampard is eyeing one major attacking signing this summer, according to the Express. Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham, and Michy Batshuayi are the players in the current squad who can hold up the ball very well. Yet, Abraham has been the one consistent player among these three. Clearly, this is not going to be sufficient when Chelsea want to win multiple trophies next year.

Furthermore, one of Giroud or Batshuayi was expected to be offloaded in the former. It was decided in favour of the latter, who will fetch more resale value. Giroud is also an experienced player who has scored goals in the past and continues to do so even now. Batshuayi, meanwhile, has been disappointing whenever he gets the rare opportunity.

So far, in the 2019-20 campaign, Lampard has dipped into the youth setup to enrich the squad with talent. Even though this has been an immensely successful exercise, the use of youngsters may also bring in a lot of inconsistency as it has been seen in the campaign. It was not possible to dip into the market because of the transfer ban. Now, things are falling into place and Chelsea may splash the cash even with global economy heading into recession.
