Chelsea have already wrapped up the signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner who will join the squad for next season and reports have claimed that Lampard is further looking to strengthen the squad. Looking back at the transfer ban now, it seems to have had an positive impact for Chelsea. Lampard has managed to give a lot of youngsters first team experience and at the same time they have remained competitive. If they manage to qualify for the Champions League, this will be a great season for the club. The likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, etc have performed impressively which only bodes well for the future of the club.
Having not spend any money on transfers in the one year before Covid-19, Chelsea are also in a great position financially and both Ziyech and Werner are cheap compared to last summer’s transfer prices. Lampard will look to add a left back and if possible a central defender too but already Chelsea’s squad is looking well rounded and balanced. Let’s take a look at how Chelsea might lineup next season.
Chelsea’s expected 4-3-3 formation next season
Lampard might also choose to try Werner on the left wing and giving Tammy Abraham the striker role as the young Englishman has shown a lot of promise this season. Or he might also choose to drop one of the midfield three to accommodate 4 attackers like below.
Chelsea’s attack looks formidable for next season but Lampard and the Chelsea board still have work to do to secure some defensive signings. Also another issue is with the goalkeeper situation at Chelsea as Kepa has failed to impress after his record move and Lampard must decide whether to stick with him or sign a new replacement.
