Marina Granovskaia’s next two Chelsea transfer priorities to complete Frank Lampard’s squad

After the transfer ban in the summer of 2019, Chelsea certainly made up for it in the last summer window.

The Blues made some serious moves to strengthen the squad and give Frank Lampard the players he needs to compete for the Premier League title again.

Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Edouard Mendy all came into the squad, while Malang Sarr was signed as a free transfer and loaned to Porto.

It’s given the Blues a real chance of challenging for titles this season, either in the league, FA Cup or Champions League.

However, Lampard will not feel like his squad is all complete in just one window.

Marina Granovskaia was once again the director who negotiated the deals for the new players, and any future transfers are likely to go through her again.

The Blues could dip into the market in January if needed, while they will most likely try for new players again in the summer of 2021.

But where will Granovskaia and Lampard be targeting to complete the squad?

Centre-back

After a poor 2019/20 campaign at the back, where the Blues conceded 54 Premier League goals, it wasn’t completely sorted over the summer.

Thiago Silva is a short-term solution, coming in as a free transfer for one season, with the option of another if both parties are happy.

Meanwhile, Sarr was sent out on loan to Porto and there is still a question over whether or not he will fulfil the potential.

Antonio Rudiger’s future is likely to be away from Stamford Bridge, with Tomori’s future still in the air as well.
