Frank Lampard is reportedly set to be handed around £150million to spend if Chelsea’s transfer ban is lifted, according to The Telegraph.
The Blues’ appeal against a transfer ban by FIFA for breaking rules to sign youth players from abroad will be heard on November 20 at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
The verdict due before the January transfer window opens after Chelsea have already served half of its one-year ban on registering new players.
Lampard is already planning for a busy January.
He said: “At Chelsea, we will always look to improve in windows, if we’re allowed to, and if the players we might look at are better or we feel are adding to the squad. Of course, I’m interested because it’s obviously going to affect potentially what we can do in January or not.”
Here are top 5 players in Chelsea’s wishlist if transfer ban is lifted.
Chelsea have reportedly put Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho at the top of their wish-list. The 19-year-old has been a revelation in the Bundesliga since his move from Manchester City in 2017. Last season he scored 12 league goals and gained the attention from England boss Gareth Southgate.
Sancho has since become a regular in the international set-up, making a total of 10 appearances with his first England goals coming in the 5-3 win over Kosovo in September.
Chelsea could face a battle for Sancho, from Manchester United and Real Madrid.
