Frank Lampard sent huge Chelsea transfer warning ahead of January transfer window
Steve Nicol has fired Chelsea a transfer warning ahead of the January transfer window.
Chelsea have appealed their transfer appeal, they are now just waiting for the courts to come back and give them an answer on whether or not they will be bale to sign any players during the January transfer window.
Frank Lampard has one of the most exciting sides in the Premier League, but there is a feeling that he is still lacking in world class ability in order to get this Chelsea side challenging for more than a top four spot in the coming seasons.
Lampard saw his Chelsea side lose 1-0 to West Ham at the weekend, as Lampard’s side were beaten thanks to an Aaron Cresswell goal just after half-time.
The Blues boss was forced to make multiple changes for the game, most notably with Olivier Giroud coming back into the fold for a rare start as star man Tammy Abraham picked up a injury which kept him out of the game.
And Liverpool icon Nicol claimed on ESPN that the Blues will suffer if they go deep into the Champions League, because Saturday’s result shows they don’t have enough strength in depth.
“I think for Chelsea the problems will start if they go deep into the Champions League,” he said.
“At their best, they’re capable of scoring goals.
“When it gets to the knockout stages, they could win games, which I don’t think they can handle.
“I think we saw today when they’re forced to make changes, they’re not particularly deep.
“Big time [the transfer embargo will impact them].”
Look, there are many out there that believed that Chelsea would be nowhere as good as they have been this season, and Lampards side are proving a lot of people in the media wrong about just how good this side is.
But they are lacking depth, they are lacking world class ability in the right areas and they do need to delve into their transfer kitty to try and get this squad upto shape enough to challenge some of the best sides in the game right now.
