At the end of January transfer window, the Blues were unable to add to the squad, despite the fact that Chelsea were in dire need of signings to strengthen the side at this stage of the season.
Frank Lampard has been unable to add to his squad since his appointment as Chelsea manager, and reporter Dan Levene has tried to explain Chelsea’s new transfer strategy.
Levene has revealed that Chelsea’s new transfer strategy is not to splash the cash but rather to nurture academy products and strengthen the team where need be.
Speaking about Chelsea’s lack of signing this window, Lampard said: “I wouldn’t say it’s been frustrating as I’m very aware of how football is. Some things are not in my control so my first thought is always what happens on the training pitch.
“It’s clear we wanted to bring players in and I’ve made that pretty clear over the last weeks but it hasn’t happened.”
