Abramovich willing to bankroll two major Chelsea additions

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to bankroll two major additions this summer.

With the transfer window fast approaching, and this season a huge wake up call for Lampard, the manager has had time to assess what areas he needs to improve.

Chelsea restart the Premier League later this month sat in fourth place and will desperately be hoping to finish in the Champions League spots to help them secure their top targets.

Despite owner Abramovich not renewing his visa in the last two years and his commitment to the club sometimes questioned, he is 'as enthusiastic as ever' in splashing the cash in the coming months, reports the Athletic.

Abramovich is ready to back Lampard with at least two big-money signings with Leicester's Ben Chilwell the priority. Also in Lampard's plans for a summer revamp is the need for more attacking players.
