Chelsea are wasting no time in the transfer market ahead of next season.
The Blues have already sealed two deals in Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, and three more deals are expected to be wrapped up in the coming days.
ESPN reporter Alex Shaw has confirmed in a tweet that Chelsea are also close to tying deals for Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz and Ben Chilwell.
He wrote in a tweet: “Chelsea mean business. Thiago Silva to sign 2-year deal this week. Chilwell almost done, Havertz progressing. Werner, Ziyech done. Lampard being backed by the board.”
The left-back, centre-back and attacking midfield positions are three areas that Lampard has been keen on strengthening. After these deals are completed, all that could be left in the manager’s wishlist will be to sign a top goalkeeper.
Indeed, this could go down as one of the best transfer windows Chelsea have had in recent years.
