Chelsea are looking like a force to be reckoned with as they continue to leave their mark on the summer transfer window.
The Blues have brought in a whopping five senior players so far and are showing no signs of stopping just yet. The long-awaited move for Kai Havertz is on the brink of completion and Frank Lampard has also highlighted the importance of recruiting a new goalkeeper.
Could Chelsea win the Premier League this season?
Former Chelsea ace Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has waxed lyrical about the club’s business in the transfer market so far. He is especially impressed with their Thiago Silva coup, who joined the West Londoners last month on a free transfer.
“Thiago Silva will bring with him a wealth of experience and know-how. I understand the signing 100 per cent,” Hasselbaink told GentingBet (via Metro). “Chelsea have a lot of young players and he will be there to help them.”
The ex-striker has also commented on Lampard’s efficiency in bringing in new personnel. He said the Blues are recruiting ‘aggressively’ as they continue to splash the cash on new and improved and players to add to the squad.
“What I like most is that things have been done quickly,” Hasselbaink continued. “Timo Werner was done quickly, as was Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. They certainly do need to improve on last season and to do that, they need to get closer to Liverpool and Man City”
Indeed, Chelsea picked up towards the second half of last season and managed to earn a respectable fourth place finish. This time round will be a much closer competition, though. Lampard is eager to open up his winning portfolio with the Blues and lead the side down a road glittering with silverware.
The former England international is certainly taking the right steps towards achieving this.
