Now that the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has lifted Chelsea’s transfer ban, it’s time to look at their top five targets in January.

After breaching rules over signing underage players, FIFA slapped Chelsea with a two-window transfer ban. Therefore, the Premier League giants couldn’t make a single signing until they successfully appealed to the CAS on Friday.

Now Frank Lampard is free to finally make some signings for the first time as manager after going the entire summer with nothing. It will surely be an interesting winter over at Stamford Bridge.

And now reports have emerged claiming that the Blues coach will have a whopping €170m to splash out in January alone following the CAS’ decision.

So, we’ve taken a look at the five top targets Lampard will likely pursue in the New Year.
