Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly preparing to make signings in January if the transfer ban is lifted by CAS.
According to Le 10 Sport via The Sun, Chelsea are lining up a swoop for Monaco prodigy Benoit Badiashile.
The report claims the 18 year old centre-back is high on Lampard’s wishlist.
Badiashile is regarded as one of the top defensive prospects in Europe after breaking into Monaco’s first team this season, making seven appearances in all competitions.
Chelsea have reportedly scouted the France U19 defender several times and are apparently determined to bring him to the Premier League, even if it means waiting until next summer as we did with Christian Pulisic.
The Sun claims Badiashile is interested in a move to Stamford Bridge.
