Frank Lampard wants Chelsea to land Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech ahead of league rivals Manchester United, according to the latest reports.

Lampard was unable to bring any new faces to Stamford Bridge in his first transfer market in charge and Chelsea have been quiet this month in spite of the manager insisting his squad needs strengthening.

But the Blues are expected to oversee a spending spree this summer, with Frank set to be given substantial funds to bolster a team which is currently fourth in the league. According to ESPN, Lampard has pinpointed Leicester City defender Chilwell and Ajax ace Ziyech as key summer targets.

It is claimed Frank is considering replacing title-winning defender Marcos Alonso and wants to add more creativity to his midfield. The 23-year-old Ben has impressed for Leicester and England over the past 18 months and has drawn interest from Manchester United. The Red Devils have also been connected with a move for Morocco international Ziyech but Frank hopes Chelsea win the race to secure his signature along with Ben. Speaking after Chelsea’s narrow FA Cup win over Championship club Hull City, the English coach said:

‘We lost ground last summer [with the transfer ban] and we need to make moves now to take us forward. ‘I have a strong feeling of where we can improve personnel-wise to take us forward. So for me it’s clear. ‘The money of it is not my job but I have to be honest and truthful. Short-term recruitment is something we have to get right.’
