Seven unpolished gems to strengthen Frank Lampard’s strongest team and save Chelsea millions

The upcoming summer transfer window may be one of the most important in Chelsea’s recent history.

The Blues have performed well under Frank Lampard this season but his squad lacks quality in key areas. That needs to be addressed.

Chelsea have been linked with a number of top stars such as Jadon Sancho, Ben Chilwell, Timo Werner and Philippe Coutinho, but their transfer budget won’t stretch to sign all of them.

So we have picked out seven players from La Liga the Blues could target to fill the gaps, and who won’t come at extortionate prices.

Mauro Arambarri

Age: 24

Club: Getafe

Position: Central midfielder

Arambarri arrived in Spain as something of an unknown. Now, he stands as one of the poster boys for Getafe’s excellent recruitment policy since their return to La Liga in 2017.

The 24-year-old can control the tempo of a game, battle hard and show tenacity off the ball and has an impressive range of passing. He has shown that while he has the stereotypical grit of any player hoping to play for Uruguay in their current style, he has a refined side to his game.

With Jorginho’s future at Stamford Bridge uncertain, pursuing a deal for Arambarri may be a smart option – especially with a rumoured release clause of only €20m.

Marc Roca

Age: 23

Club: Espanyol

Position: Central midfielder

Heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich last summer, Roca remains at a club which he holds dear but one he should have aspirations far beyond.

Espanyol have struggled this term despite having talented technical players. Roca is one of them, a mainstay for Spain’s Under-21 set-up and built for a possession-hungry, dominant side.

His range of passing, coolness under pressure and ability to play out from deep, crowded areas of the field mean he is perfectly suited for Lampard’s midfield.
