The transfer plan for Chelsea has moved to its ultimate stage with supreme double transfer targets.
Chelsea are planning to be one of the leading contenders for next season’s campaign with a major rebuilding project despite being amidst a global pandemic.
Owner Roman Abramovich has never shied away from spending big with his club and the latest addition of club legend Frank Lampard to the coaching staff has significantly improved a previously struggling Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri.
Despite already signing exciting talents such as Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner from Ajax and RB Leipzig respectively, the club have not completed their transfer spree.
Many believe that the updated Chelsea could challenge both Liverpool and Manchester City for the League title next season but the English coach has a better plan. Frank is planning to build a thriller squad for next season by signing two more superstars with Jan Oblak and Kai Havertz being the latest additions according to reports.
The pair will surely cost the London side quite significantly and Lampard must sell his existing players to make it happen. Emerson Palmieri and Michy Batshuayi could ideally be the ones used to salvage the finances needed to secure the two stars.
Meanwhile, current goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been a constant issue for the coach and could be offered to Atletico Madrid as an exchange for Oblak. While AS claims that Atletico coach, Diego Simone, wishes to keep ahold of one of the best goalkeepers in the world, the reported offer of 100 million euros along with Kepa could potentially change the Argentine coach’s mind.
Goal reports that Bayern Leverkusen values their star midfielder, Havertz, around the same 100 million range, which begs the question of how the club are planning to raise an immense capital purely by player sales.
While it remains a reality that Lampard has many loaned out players who could bring in additional funds like Victor Moses, Kenedy, Baba Rahman, and more, the real issue is whether other clubs will be able to afford them with regards to the ongoing financial crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic.
