Chelsea boss Lampard adds Havertz, Sancho and Werner to shopping list

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has drawn up a star-studded shopping list for the summer market.

Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell has been a long-term target of Lampard's while, The Athletic says Chelsea have also drawn up a shortlist of attacking talent in the Bundesliga as they look to make two landmark signings.

That includes Bayer Leverkusen's Kai Havertz, Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho and RB Leipzig's in-demand frontman Timo Werner, while a move for Moussa Dembele at French side Lyon could emerge.

Chilwell, though, is Lampard's main target. A fee of £85m was mooted earlier this year but Chelsea are hopeful that he will be cheaper in the current financial climate.

And with Willian and Pedro expected to leave in the summer, Lampard also wants to bolster his attacking ranks.
