Chelsea boss responds when asked about January transfer plans

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has refused to comment on the club’s possible strategy during the forthcoming transfer window. The Blues were initially banned from signing players for two complete transfer windows starting from the summer but they have managed to reduce the punishment to a half after a successful appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

As a result, there has been much enthusiasm from the media to know about the Blues’ transfer plans but Lampard has refused to give any clue over the same by stating that he is content with the current squad of players, he told: “I’m certainly not going to sit here today and go too far down any lines with that. But we’ll see where we are. I’m happy with the squad here. We’re doing okay. My job is always to focus on the next game and what’s in front of us. In terms of the bigger picture and what we do going forward, of course that’s constant and it is sometimes fluid, so there are no absolute answers at this point.”

The Blues have certainly performed better than the initial expectations under Lampard and that has partly resulted from the breakthrough of some of the club graduates including Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, and Fikayo Tomori. The trio have been almost ever-present for the Blues over the past few months and each of them have made valuable contributions towards the team ending up on the winning side.

The west London giants recently suffered a minor stutter with two league defeats on the bounce but they managed to redeem themselves with a victory over Aston Villa in midweek. Abraham and Mount were the scorers and the former also contributed the assist for his compatriot. The Blues are scheduled to face Everton away from home on Saturday and the game promises to be an exciting contest with the Toffees likely to provide a response after the recent sacking of manager Marco Silva.
