Frank Lampard wants to assess his options at Chelsea. Chelsea boss has asked Kovacic about one of his targets.
Chelsea has now a lot of talent in their team. Frank Lampard has done an excellent job of recruiting players for the club. But now the decision ahead of Frank Lampard is, should he stop or continue his pursuit.
Chelsea has addressed most of its issues. With the signing of Kai Havertz, the club will have a number of star names in the midfield and the attack. Defensively Chilwell, Silva, and Malang Sarr will be enough to provide balance to the team.
All the club needs now is a new goalkeeper, and then they have enough personnel to set up their squad. But the challenge is assessing decisions for new signings now. Should Lampard decide to tweak things a little bit.
Jorginho, Ross Barkley, Ngolo Kante all of these players were important for the team this season. However, their future in the squad isn’t exactly guaranteed. Jorginho is on the brink of an exit.
Barkley will face problems in-game time with the arrival of Havertz. Inter Milan on the other hand are showing an interest in Ngolo Kante. But Chelsea has made their stance clear for Kante.
He still has 3 years left on his contract and if Inter wants to sign him they will have to pay £80 million. However, Inter Milan has tried a different approach to signing Kante.
Lampard asks Kovacic’s opinion on Brozovic
Inter may propose a very interesting offer to Chelsea. According to Sempreinter, Inter Milan are considering a two-way swap with Chelsea. Milan Skriniar and Marcelo Brozovic will head to Chelsea, Ngolo Kante and Emerson Palmieri will head to Inter.
Inter will have to pay an additional amount because of the difference in the valuation of the players involved. But it might be an intriguing decision for Frank Lampard. Milan Skriniar is a player sought by many clubs.
Chelsea are still on the lookout for a long term defensive solution and Skriniar might be it. Brozovic also is coming off a good season but had some issues off the pitch because of which his role in the squad has diminished. It could be a fresh start for Brozovic.
Frank Lampard has asked Mateo Kovacic about Marcelo Brozovic. Kovacic and Brozovic have played together at Inter and at Dinamo Zagreb, Kovacic has put in a good word for Brozovic.
There are other parties involved too in Brozovic’s pursuit. According to reports PSG and Bayern Munich are also showing an interest in him. Although Chelsea could grab the opportunity before either of these clubs.
However, Chelsea are also looking to sign Declan rice from West Ham. Rice and Brozovic play in a similar role but Rice would be the better option. Because he is young and has very good potential for growth.
