Football: Lampard says more to come as Chelsea look to bridge the gap

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

LONDON: Chelsea fans can expect more from the London club in the transfer market as they look to bridge the gap with Liverpool and Manchester City next season, manager Frank Lampard has said.

Chelsea have sealed deals for Morocco winger Hakim Ziyech and Germany forward Timo Werner, and have been linked with a move for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz as they rebuild the squad following a close-season transfer ban last year.

Lampard’s side are third in the Premier League with 63 points, 30 points adrift of champions Liverpool, but can seal a Champions League berth by winning their two remaining league games.

With an FA Cup final against Arsenal on the horizon, Lampard believes Chelsea have a lot to look forward to.

“With what we do in the summer, there will be more to come,” Lampard said. “We want to win the final. We want to close the gap.”

“We are working towards something. It doesn’t come easy. We have seen that with other teams in recent years. It is step by step. We have shown lots of good stuff this year.

“Three games won’t define the progress we have made but we are at the business end.”
