Despite all the signings made since the era of the old guard, former Chelsea skipper Dennis Wise doesn’t think Chelsea have found a replacement for Blues legend Frank Lampard.

Chelsea have the likes of N’Golo kante, Danny Drinkwater, Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko in their ranks, but Wise thinks Chelsea need a goalscoring midfielder in the mould of Frank Lampard.

“[Chelsea need] not only a centre-forward but a goal-scoring central midfield player,” he told Sky Sports.

“I look at Kante and Bakayoko – they’re very similar. When can one of them really break into the box and score a goal?

“Kante is great at what he does – he breaks everything up and Bakayoko is a bit like him.

“That’s what I think also Chelsea also need [in January].

“Frank Lampard did it for years and Frank hasn’t been replaced yet. You want to see more goals from your midfield two.

“That’s what I’d like to see [Chelsea sign] as well as another centre-forward who can get in there and is as good as Morata.”
