Chelsea boss Frank Lampard offers striker transfer update after Arsenal draw

Frank Lampard has reaffirmed that Chelsea are looking to bring in another striker in the January transfer window after their 2-2 draw with Arsenal .

The Blues could only draw with their London rivals at Stamford Bridge despite having an extra man for most of the game and having led twice.

The home side took the lead after 28 minutes through Jorginho from the penalty spot, soon after David Luiz had been sent off for the Gunners for the initial foul.

But Mikel Arteta ’s team came storming back in the second half to initially equalise through Gabriel Martinelli.

Chelsea thought they had won it with just a few minutes remaining after Cesar Azpilicueta slid home from close range but again Arsenal equalised, this time through Hector Bellerin in the 87th minute.

The Blues were not at their best but were again guilty of missing several decent chances on the night, something that has been a problem all season long.

Tammy Abraham has performed well in his first proper season with Chelsea but Lampard has been keen to bring in some support if possible.

The club have been linked with several forward players this month, including Moussa Dembele and Edinson Cavani.

“If you don’t score enough goals then you won’t win enough games.
