£145 million duo all set to sign for Chelsea after Abramovic approves ‘marquee signings’
Chelsea are on course to sign two “marquee signings” this summer with Ben Chilwell and Timo Werner the clubs main targets, according to reports.
After months and months of fighting their transfer ban, Frank Lampard managed to get an early Christmas Present this month after it was revealed that the ban had been lifted, and Chelsea were able to sign players again in the January window, but despite all the transfer reports, a move did not materialise.
Emerson Palmieri made a strong start to the campaign, but has been dealt with several injury problems and Chelsea have had to turn to Marcos Alonso, who you feel is not a particular favourite of Lampard’s.
That has led to reports in the media suggesting that Ben Chilwell is the clubs number one transfer target after another impressive Premier League season with Leicester, firmly establishing himself as one of the best in the game right now.
Werner meanwhile has also been on the list of Lampard for months now, as the German has established himself as one of the best strikers in the game and is tipped to make a move to the Premier League when the season is up.
And according to reports on the METRO, Lampard could indeed get his two top transfer targets after it has been claimed that Roman Abramovic will hand him the funds to complete c couple of marquee signings.
Reports have claimed that Abramovic is excited about the potential of this Chelsea side under Lampard and is willing to back the boss in order to get this side back challenging for trophies next season.
The Foxes were looking for around £85m for the services of Chilwell, while Werner would cost in excess of £60 million to sign up if Chelsea are that keen on trying to get the duo.
So fans will be hoping that these reports are true and Lampard will be backed, as adding these two to the side will send a real statement to the rest of the Premier League guys.
