After spending a great deal on the summer transfer window, Frank Lampard is preparing to storm Chelsea’s coffers again in January, this time with a focus on defense.
The Blues manager had his way when chasing down players like Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, but he needs to look forward to the center-back position given that another new summer signing, Thiago Silva, is already 36 years old and it will not be. around forever.
The highly skilled 20-year-old is believed to be ready to leave the French team, and around the £ 13.5 million mark, his hire would represent a bargain.
Lampard clearly needs to refresh a team that have won just once in their last five games, putting enormous pressure on the shoulders of Chelsea’s former midfielder and record scorer.
Simakan could represent the first of a handful of new faces to help propel the Blues back up the Premier League table.
