Frank Lampard reportedly informs board of the striker he wants to sign » Chelsea News

It looks pretty certain that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be looking to sign a new striker in the summer.

He has repeatedly spoken in public about adding attacking reinforcements to his squad, and was disappointed that a new striker was not added in January after a number of failed pursuits.

Current options Olivier Giroud is out of contract in June, and Michy Batshuayi has failed to step up. The burden has been left with Tammy Abraham, now Lampard wants to add some top quality competition for the clubs leading goalscorer.

According to SPORT, Lampard has asked the Chelsea board to sign Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic on loan next season.

The 22-year old has struggled to hit the ground running since making his big money move to La Liga, and this kind of deal could be something that suits all parties.

I am sure we will be hearing more on this pursuit over the coming months.
