Lampard was embarrassed with how easy Bayern Munich carved Chelsea open on Tuesday night and has now identified a centre-back partner for Antonio Rudiger.

According to Daily Mirror, RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano has emerged as a key transfer target for Chelsea following the loss to Bayern Munich.

Upamecano’s time with RB Leipzig could be set to end this summer, as he closes on the final 12 months of his deal with the Bundesliga side.

The 21 year old defender has already stated he will wait until the end of the season before making a decision over his future: “I will speak well with my agents and my parents at the end of the season.

“And we will make the right decision.”

  1. Not only the defence being ripped, how about the midfield (very well dismantled.

  2. Yes, that would be a great help to our befence. I highly welcome that signing form Lampard

  3. Throw away Ross Barkley, wingers like expired pedro,dump odoi in the Hudson bay and ban BATSHUAYI from training with the first team,get oblak and kepa who can’t be a keeper.

  4. My issue is lampard, his inexperience is coursing us trouble. Time to make a change he failed to understand it. Let the club look for good coach not Lampard.Ross Barley,Batshuayi. Our midfield has problem too.

  5. We need a drastically change

  6. Lampard please if fans can see the problem at first half and you just worm the sit!! Not bothering to make a change!!!

  7. Lampard should look for a good goalkeeper,two centre backs,one forward ie.oblak,timo Werner

  8. Lampard should be blamed for our defeat to Bayern. In this world of sports. how can Lampard substitute an experienced player like William for Mason mount and eventually changed the role of James to a winger? Lampard should risk James as a central defender along with Rudiger.lamps should redefine his style
