Chelsea boss Frank Lampard can now make signings in the January transfer window after the ban placed on the club by FIFA was halved by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The Blues were meant to serve the ban for two windows and couldn’t sign any player during the summer due to the ban.

With the ban now lifted, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that he will like to sign a replacement for the departed Eden Hazard.

Hazard was sold to Real Madrid at the end of last season before the appointment of Frank Lampard, and Lampard has admitted that he needs quality in that position.

When asked about Chelsea’s January transfer targets following the win against Lille on Tuesday night, Lampard said: “I think it will be a bit fluid and discussions will be ongoing from now about where we can strengthen.

“Of course, with Eden leaving we lost a lot of goals and creation in that particular position.

“Today we’ve missed some chances and we can look at strengthening and pushing and getting more competition in those areas.”

Reports claim Chelsea are considering a club record bid of £100m for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, who is looking to leave Dortmund.
