It is almost sure that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be in the market to chop for a new striker in the summer.
He has repeatedly spoken in public about adding more attacking options to his squad, and no doubts, he was disappointed that a new striker was not added in January after a number of failed pursuits.
Olivier Giroud is out of contract in June, and Michy Batshuayi doesn’t have the qualities to lead the Chelsea attack. With only Tammy Abraham left to carry the burden, Lampard wants a 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 a mark since his move to La Liga, and this kind of deal could be something that suits all parties.
Having Jovic to provide competition for Abraham will really help Chelsea’s attacking set up.
