Chelsea’s transfer business has been criticised after they were told they have been overpaying this summer.
The Blues have not been shy in the transfer market this window with six new arrivals.
Frank Lampard was unable to make any signings last summer but has been making up for lost time
The new faces include Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Hakim Ziyech.
It has seen Chelsea spend over £200m – though the arrivals of Silva and Sarr came on free transfers.
And the London outfit are not done yet with a goalkeeper and Declan Rice in Lampard’s sights.

Improving the backline has been a priority of the Englishman’s this summer.
But a top-ranking agent has slammed Lampard’s business, insisting he has overpaid for players this year.
