Chelsea boss Frank Lampard expects to sign three more players this summer despite signing five players already this summer, according to The Sun.

The Blues have already signed Ben Chilwell (£50million), Timo Werner (£48m) and Hakim Ziyech (£36m) this window. Centre-backs Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr have also arrived on free transfers.

The Sun claims Lampard expects Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia to complete the deal for Kai Havertz, sign Declan Rice and also a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea have reportedly agreed a fee for Havertz with Bayer Leverkusen, with the 21 year old also agreeing personal terms with the Blues.

West Ham want £80 million for Declan Rice but the Sun claim the Blues are only willing to pay £50 million for Rice.

Lampard is also desperate for a new goalkeeper to replace £71.6m goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who struggled for form last season.

Lampard has already looked at Dean Henderson, Andre Onana, Jan Oblak and Edouard Mendy. Reports in Italy also claim the Blues are in talks to sign AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
