After failing to make any signing in the last two transfer windows, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on strengthening his squad in the summer transfer window.
The Chelsea board will back Lampard with a transfer budget in excess of £150 million but that could be increased to £250 million through player sales in the summer.
According to Daily Express, Chelsea have a 13-man transfer shortlist for the summer.
Lampard was keen on signing a forward during the January transfer window and there are five forwards he would choose from this summer.
Lyon’s Moussa Dembele, RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner, Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, Crystal Palace Wilfried Zaha and Richarlison of Everton are all on the shortlist.
Other players in the transfer shortlist, according to Daily Express, are Martin Dubravka of Newcastle United, Nathan Ake of Bournemouth, Ben Chilwell of Leicester City, Ben White of Brighton, Diego Rico of Bournemouth, Nick Pope of Burnley, Juan Musso of Udinese and Issa Diop of West Ham.
