Chelsea missed making a tangible signing over two transfer windows, due to the ban placed on the club as well as missing out on targets in the January transfer window.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has managed the plyers at his disposal, with the Blues currently in fourth position in the Premier League, before the coronavirus pandemic led to the suspension of football.

However, Chelsea are preparing for next season massively, having signed a top player in Hakim Ziyech and also set to sign highly rated RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp, has admitted that he’s happy with the progress the club has been making.

“It’s a great signing,” said Redknapp.

“They have got [Hakim] Ziyech as well and he looks like a really good signing as well. Frank is building a really good, young side.

“Tammy [Abraham] has done well up front, but he can play in any of the three front positions. I think it just shows that they are doing good things at Chelsea. Frank has done a great job, especially if they get top four.

“If the deal is done without knowing that Chelsea are going to be in the Champions League, then it shows you that he was very impressed with what Frank and Chelsea are doing right now.

“He will probably look at that Chelsea front line, with Willian and Pedro out of contract this summer, and think that he can be a regular in that team.”

Werner has already bagged 31 goals and 12 assists in 40 appearances for Leipzig across all competitions this season so far, and is rated as one of the most fearsome strikers in Europe at the moment.
