Frank Lampard is airing on the side of caution when it comes to new signings.

Lampard recently got the go-ahead to spend in the January transfer window. Chelsea’s transfer embargo was lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

However, Lampard will not spend for spending’s sake.

He is considering both long and short term deals to bring players in. However, he is also contemplating bringing nobody in and keeping his squad as is.

Speaking to the press in his scheduled conference, according to Goal, the Stamford Bridge boss is happy with what he’s got. He will only spend if he is 100% sure its the right deal for the club.

He said:

“I think I should be because that’s where we’re at at the moment.”

“If it feels right for us, then we’ll do it.”

“I think the idea of January being a time to buy players, it’s difficult for everybody.”

“For players coming in, especially if they’re coming from a different league, for the club and for the settlement of the group.”

“I think that’s why we have to think ultra carefully and I do care and consider the club and where we’re going.”

“I don’t want to make some knee-jerk reaction to say ‘here’s my first big signing’ because we couldn’t sign anyone in the summer.”

“That’s why if I do it I’ll try and consider all things.”

“It will always be in communication with the club.”

“Hopefully, it’s the best thing for us. Whether that’s more of a short-term option or a long-term option, we’ll also have to consider.”
