The transfer window closes in just about 48 hours, and the Blues are yet to make any signing to bolster the squad as Chelsea try to fight for a top four finish.

Frank Lampard is keen on strengthening his attack before the end of the transfer window, but the Blues have been unable to make any signings, much to the frustration of Chelsea fans.

Former Chelsea manager Glenn Hoddle doesn’t think Lampard’s relationship with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is as before, since the Russian has been denied access to the United Kingdom.

“I think the relationship with Abramovich when he was playing was very good,” Hoddle said to Premier League Productions.

“I’m not so sure it’s at that level at the moment and I think that’s where Frank’s got a slight problem with the board.

“It was obviously changed with Abramovich’s situation, the scenario’s changed obviously, not being able to come into the country and all these things have made Chelsea a different club to what it was possibly two seasons ago.”
