Chelsea legend Frank Lampard fears Chelsea could lose key players like Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard if the Blues aren’t ambitious in the transfer market.

“Great players such as Hazard and Courtois will always be looked at by Real Madrid, so to protect yourself you need to get them on long contracts,” Lampard told The Evening Standard.

“With the kind of money being spent elsewhere, Chelsea have to keep moving forward and recruiting new talent to play around them.

“The club can’t lose what they’ve got. Hazard is the main person there.

“He is 27 and a player of his ability has his prime years ahead of him. He will want to challenge for the Champions League but the club have to match that ambition as well.”

Lampard also revealed signing top players increases competition for places which is good for the club

“When Chelsea signed Ballack, it pushed me on,” Lampard added.

“It was great we were bringing in a top player but I also knew I had to fight for my place.

“As a player you must concentrate on yourself first and foremost. But you want to see the club improving.”

    I wonder what the Board is doing? All we hear is rumour, no action is taken to buy players. Chelsea is doing poorly compared to Man United, Man City and Arsenal. You don’t value what you have until you lose it, talking about Hazard and Courtois.

    Chelsea must not concentrate in selling and buying but rather concentrate in using our quality players so that we win trophys, the coach has to make less than three changes since conte doesn’t have a fixed first this is known to bring us down.we have good players to win as we are now but they’re always left on the bench.

    It is very disappointing to see how Chelsea deals with registration this winter market. if strong measures are not taken earlier we are going to loose key players as Lampard suggested.

    Well we need some quality . This appears as the top four slaughts is experiencing high competition . Abramovich should do something .

    It is a practical experiment. Going by lampard’s opinion on the increase competition for places when quality is added to the team. It challenges the players and have them sit up. This theory came into reality when on arrival, manager Conte, brought to use players like Moses who hitherto played a second feeble at Chelsea. Having been given the opportunity, Moses had to proven his quality and secured a place for himself. This, together with the introduction of players like Cante & Luiz got the team strong enough to win the league. We must continue in this stead to stay strong with the Chelsea prestige…
