The transfer ban placed on Chelsea might have been lifted, but Blues boss Frank Lampard isn’t getting carried away with the fact that Chelsea can now venture into the January transfer market.

Lampard has admitted that he needs to strengthen the squad, but the Blues boss also admits that he won’t sign a player for the sake of it.

Lampard insists that he’s calm heading into the transfer market and will only sign the right players if they are available. For the Chelsea boss, the team must continue to work hard whether or not the squad is strengthened.

He said after the Lille clash: “I’m very calm about this window. I know what the squad is, we feel very together with the dressing room. We are improving, even the little bumps of the last two weeks are part of the process.

“It may be that we don’t see so much in January where you can do great business. If it’s there to be done and it feels like it’s right for the club, that’s a conversation for me and upstairs, then we may look at it.

“But I’m very calm about January. I believe in what we have got now, and I don’t think we’re going to be crazy just because the ban has been lifted. From my point of view, we have to just keep working.”
