Chelsea fans are disappointed at the state of transfer inactivity of the club as the club’s rivals have all made significant signings this January transfer window.

Manchester United have today confirmed the signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting C.P, while Spurs have as well confirmed the signing of Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven.

Chelsea have been linked with a number of targets so far, but the Blues are yet to make any significant signing to the squad.

Some fans of the club have taken to social media to reveal their discontentment.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted his squad needed strengthening in the wake of Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Hull City last weekend.

“There is no movement to speak of now,” the Chelsea manager told BT Sport.

“We got a punishment in the summer and it is meant to hurt you. We lost one of the biggest players in our history in Eden Hazard. That is the situation.  

“My job is to work every day on the training ground to make the players better. The other part is looking at how we can move forward by bringing in players.

“We lost ground last summer and we need to make moves now to take us forward. ‘I have a strong feeling of where we can improve personnel-wise to take us forward.

“So for me it’s clear. The money of it is not my job but I have to be honest and truthful. Short-term recruitment is something we have to get right.”
