Frank Lampard is excited about his Chelsea squad but has admitted he is open to making more additions in the right areas.

Due to the club’s transfer ban, Lampard was unable to welcome new signings to the club last summer and yet no new signings were made in the January window as well.

The Blues will welcome Hakim Ziyech who signed in February and would essentially be the first signing in the Frank Lampard era.

For the lack of activity over the past two windows, it’s normal to think that Chelsea would like to go all out to make new signings in the next window.

The likes of Philippe Coutinho, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner are some of the names that have circled around the West-London side in recent weeks.

And while the 41-year-old is happy about his current squad, the manager has welcomed the prospect of making new additions in the right positions.

“I’m certainly excited about the squad we’ve got, with the young players and if we can get a few additions for areas I feel we need,” Lampard told the Chelsea magazine as quoted by Football.London.

“We didn’t bring in anyone in January, it didn’t work out to be right for us at the time, and last summer we couldn’t bring anyone in, so those windows are gone and we haven’t changed”

“So I am excited about the squad we’ve got, if we can freshen up in the right areas we all know that.”

Lampard’s first season as Chelsea manager hasn’t gone the best but considering the circumstances of his appointment, there is much to be optimistic about.

Regarding the summer window, left-back and the striker position are the two main areas the Blues ideally want to strengthen.
