Lampard on the chase for a striker could control the ball and play around him
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard appears to be resolved to acquire a striker this summer, as he needed to do back in January.
Nothing unfolded there in spite of interests being made for a few alternatives, however Lampard still needs to get some better competition for the clubs top goalscorer Tammy Abraham.
Olivier Giroud has already signed another contract at the club, however that doesn’t really imply that he remains at Chelsea.
Batshuayi could be sold or go out on loan again this summer, and Frank Lampard is looking for a specific sort of striker to replace one of them two.
Strangely however, the sort of striker being depicted is very Giroud-like.
Simon Johnson of The Athletic has been talking about the subject on The Straight Outta Cobham podcast, as detailed by 101 Great Goals.
Johnson of The Athletic has some close associations at Chelsea and he accepts that Lampard needs a sort of striker who can control the ball up.
Indeed, they’re [Chelsea] on the chase for another forward. Be that as it may, it’s much progressively troublesome. I think Chelsea have enough in their financial plan.
I was conversing with somebody a few days ago, who said that probably they’ll be one major signing, and afterward whatever comes up, swap deals and so on…
The striker which Frank Lampard needs is somebody who can control the ball and play around him. Which is a lot of a Giroud type striker.
