After Chelsea’s transfer ban was reduced last week, we are convinced that Chelsea should go after Jadon Sancho ASAP. 

Chelsea just became one of the strongest contenders to sign Jadon Sancho during the winter transfer window.

This happened after the Blues’ transfer ban was reduced by UEFA, they will be able to sign players this winter.

The plan is to start looking for Eden Hazard’s replacement even if he doesn’t get to play the UEFA Champions League.

Manager Frank Lampard recognized that the Blues are in dire need of a player that can bring back the goals lost after the Belgian star left.

This leaves the open door for several great players who can definitely help Chelsea FC.

While the options might be limited. We do have knowledge that Jadon Sancho is the player that the Blues are going after.

We previously revealed that Roman Abramovich is willing to pay big money for this player in order to defeat Manchester United to the punch.

Chelsea is willing to do whatever it takes to convince the young star.

Even Sancho himself has already given a few hints at a possible transfer to London, which is his home town.

The Borussia Dortmund young star has been performing well for his club in recent days.

This is regarded as an audition to sign for Chelsea this winter. 

Lampard’s hint on Chelsea’s move for Hazard’s replacement. 

“I think it will be a bit fluid,” said Lampard on BT Sport after defeating Lille at Stamford Bridge.

“There will be discussions that go on from now about where we can strengthen, because of course with Eden leaving we lost a lot of goals, a lot of creation in his particular position.”

“What I’m talking about today is that we missed some chances and I think we can probably look at strengthening and pushing and getting maybe more competition in those areas.”

“With the youth, we understand those bumps in the road will come, whether individually or collectively.”

“I push them a lot, I’m quite tough with them, and I want them to work and improve. But at the same time, you do have to be a bit patient. That’s where the balance of the team and the squad is important – the older, more experienced players do help them.”

“We have got a good balance but I think today was a strong sign of how much work we have to do. It should have been a game that was finished much earlier.”

“It’s been a little bit the story of our season at times and that’s the biggest thing, for me, we need to improve.”

Chelsea’s other targets if Sancho’s move falls apart. 

Knowing that Chelsea will go after Sancho with everything they got, we can also tell you that they have a plan B in motion.

There are at least another three players that the Blues will go after if the Borussia Dortmund player doesn’t arrive.

One of them is Wilfried Zaha, who is a low-cost option for Chelsea. The other player they have in mind is Nicolas Pepe, but Arsenal won’t let him leave that easily.

Chelsea is also looking for other options in Spanish football and the Bundesliga, but there is nothing concrete as of yet.

And last but not least, the Blues have the dream of possibly convincing Paulo Dybala that moving to Chelsea is a good idea.

The English club wants to bank on the good relationship between both clubs and possibly break the transfer market with the Argentine’s arrival.

The biggest wish is to sign Jadon Sancho, but the other options are also real.

Whatever happens, Lampard just confirmed that Chelsea will do everything in their power to sign a high profile player who can serve as Eden Hazard’s replacement as soon as this winter.
