Chelsea boss Lampard admits planning for 'high quality' signings

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits he's seeking to buy from the top table in January.

The club have been linked with the likes of Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho and Leicester City's Ben Chilwell as they have an estimated £150million to spend.

Lampard would not reveal what players he was targeting, but he did explain how he was only eyeing high-quality signings.

“We want the top calibre of player that can improve us. I won't even hone in on those three (Sancho, Chilwell and Wilfried Zaha)," said Lampard.

“I have said it over the last couple of weeks. I am happy with the squad but we have to improve if we can. It is not just my business, in the modern day since I have been in management and at most clubs it is a joint-effort.

“We have a scouting system, the board and myself. I can put forward a lot and we will work together. I will recommend players that can improve us, fit with the style and the way we want to go and come in really hungry.

“I want people who come here wanting to win and to be a Chelsea player."
