EPL: Lampard identifies first player he’ll sign to Chelsea after transfer ban

EPL: Lampard reveals why Chelsea lost 4-0 to Man Utd
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has identified Leicester City defender, Ben Chilwell, as the first player he will sign once the club’s transfer ban is lifted.

Dove Bulletin had reported that FIFA have upheld the ban they handed Chelsea in February, after an investigation into the club’s signing of foreign U-18 players.

The rules state that no player under 18 is allowed to move to a club in a different country unless their parents are moving there for non-footballing reasons or unless they are aged 16-18 and moving within the European Economic Area.

As it stands, Chelsea can still buy players but would not be able to register them until the summer of 2020.

According to The Sun, Lampard is a huge admirer of Chilwell and has been keeping a close eye on the player’s progress.

The newspaper reports that the 41-year-old gaffer wants to sign the 22-year-old as the Blues’ new long-term left-back who is valued at £70million by Leicester.

This is coming after Chelsea were defeated 4-0 by Manchester United in the Premier League encounter on Sunday at Old Trafford.
