Chelsea eyeing SC Freiburg striker Luca Waldschmidt

Chelsea are eyeing SC Freiburg striker Luca Waldschmidt.

The Sun says Chelsea boss Frank Lampard wants a couple of new attackers and will open talks over a possible £20million deal for the Freiburg forward.

Waldschmidt, 23, has won two senior caps following his sensational performance in last year's European Under-21 Championship in Italy, where he banged in seven goals in four games.

The locals were so impressed with the starlet they named him 'Il Bomber' in a nod to West Germany's legend Gerd Muller, who was known as 'Der Bomber'.

Lampard, 41, has been on Waldschmidt's trail since and wants to bring him to the Premier League.
