Frank Lampard has been told to continue his project at Chelsea and he has identified another star player who is rated one of the best in the world to join his team.
The Blues are still in business of bringing in world-class players to Stamford Bridge in order to improve the quality of the team under Frank Lampard. According to recent reports, Chelsea board are ready to agree a massive deal to complete the signing of ‘world-class’ Dayot Upamencano from RB Leipzig as the French defender has been identified as a major transfer target by Frank Lampard to bring in more quality and also massively improve Chelsea’s defensive line.
Chelsea were one of the highest spenders in the Summer transfer window as Roman Abramovich invested heavily in the squad and the Blues signed an array of quality attacking talents. However, Frank Lampard has identified the defense as a position that needs further strengthening by Chelsea as the Blues were only able to sign Thiago Silva as their Centre-back signing. Dayot Upamencano has now been freshly linked with a move to the Stamford Bridge as Chelsea have placed the Frenchman top in their list of potential defensive signings.
22-year Old French international defender Dayot Upamencano has been regarded as one of the best young defenders in Europe as his continued impressive and commanding defensive displays for Leipzig has attracted the interest of several top clubs around Europe. Chelsea have been major admirers of Dayot Upamencano as the Frenchman is viewed as the likely long term replacement for Thiago Silva and the Blues are now working on a massive deal to sign and bring the player to Stamford Bridge.
Dayot Upamencano is quality defender and his excellent defensive ability, reading of the game, his ability to make well timed tackles and interceptions, his excellent passing range from defense will be a huge addition for Chelsea. The arrival of Dayot Upamencano will massively improve the quality of the defense at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea’s director Marina Granovskaia has been reported to be ready to start negotiations with Leipzig in order to complete the signing early like they did with Timo Werner when Chelsea signed him from the German club.
However, Chelsea will have to pay a transfer fee in the region of £47million in order to tigger the release clause in Upamencano’s contract at Leipzig and finalize personal terms with the player and his representatives. Dayot Upamencano is already hailed as a world-class prospect and his arrival to Chelsea will further reiterate Chelsea’s plans to only sign young world-class players who are capable of transforming Chelsea to a world-class team full of young players for the future.
Chelsea are looking to usurp the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool in the race for the Premier League titles and the signing of Dayot Upamencano will be a huge statement signing from the West London club. Dayot Upamencano will fit into Frank Lampard’s tactics at Chelsea and he will be a massive player for the Blues for many years if the deal can be completed in the summer of 2021.
