Kai Havertz excitement but warnings for Frank Lampard – Chelsea’s transfer window reviewed

The transfer window slammed shut yesterday with a quiet day for Chelsea.

In terms of incomings, the Blues got a lot of their moves done early and made sure that they were in a good position before the 2020/21 campaign got going.
