Frank Lampard has attracted a lot of quality players to his side as Chelsea FC were said to be the busiest in the summer transfer window. Players like Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Kai Harvetz, Edouard Mendy and others have come to signed up for the Blues, oyogist.com reports.

OYOGist.com also learned that the Blues were very active among the Premier League teams during the summer transfer market and have spent over £200m to land in players to the Stamford Bridge.

Just like the Olivier Twist, the club are still looking forward to get more players to make sure they stand a good ground and to complete what they have started.

Among other players linked to Chelsea, West Ham player Declan Rice has refused to go away. It is believed that Rice is Lampard’s target and he may be joining the Blues in January transfer window.


Marina Granovskaia could raise some cash if some of the players that have been linked away from the club get to complete their offers.

According to FootballLondon, the players that could fetch Chelsea some money are listed below;

Alonso and Emerson £16.2m.

Danny Drinkwater valued at £3.6m

Abdul Rahman £2.1m

Antonio Rudiger .£27m

Kepa Arrizabalaga £16.2m

“In total, that’s £81.3m that director Marina Granovskaia can raise and perhaps use to further bolster Lampard’s squad in January with the signing of Rice or set aside for next summer”, Football London reports.

Also Olivier Giroud has also reported to be moving away from Chelsea and has been linked with the Italian giant, Inter Milan.

Giroud is one of the players in Chelsea that is loved by the fans of the club. But he has not been having a playing time this season. He may be leaving so as to have a regular playing time in order to compete in the French National team. Giroud has recorded about 100 caps for France and he has Thiery Henry to beat in order to emerge as the top scorer for France.
