Frank Lampard is set to be named the new manager of Chelsea but the former England international is going to be restricted following a transfer ban.
Lampard did a very good job with Derby County as he took advantage of the club’s academy. Roman Abrahamovich expect’s the new Blues boss to replicate the feat with the Championship side and possibly look at a chunk of the players that are on loan spells.
Tammy Abraham and Kurt Zouma are set to be part of Chelsea’s team for next season and are likely going to play a huge role for the side. The aforementioned stars have spent the last two seasons two loan spells respectively and by every standard, they were impressive.
Abraham played for Championship side Aston Villa last season, where the enjoyed the best form of his life – the 21-year-old star scored 25 goals in 37 appearances for the Lions last season and helped them gain promotion to the Premier League.
Dean Smith is keen on signing Tammy Abraham but Chelsea will not be selling the potent striker.
Following the return of Gonzalo Higuain to Italy, Olivier Giroud is currently the only out-and-out striker at Chelsea. Lampard has no choice than to factor in the English striker in his plans.
Meanwhile, Zouma also enjoyed a barnstorming spell with the Toffees last season. He featured in 32 League games and scored two goals – he was also a key member of their squad that thumped the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal in the Premier League.
Zouma has a good experience playing at the top, he’d be a good option for the squad of Lampard.
