Chelsea legend Frank Lampard reportedly had a two-man transfer shortlist at the club before his dismissal as the Blues boss. Sky Sports Italia reporter Angelo Mangiantesaid that the ex-Blues boss wanted to sign two players to boost his team before the Chelsea hierarchy decided to relieve him of his job on the back of some poor results in the Premier League. Frank Lampard was sacked at the start of the year and replaced by Thomas Tuchel, who has managed clubs like. Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Mainz 05 and Borussia Dortmund. Angelo Mangiante revealed that Frank Lampard wanted to sign West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice and Borussia Dortmund goalscoring machine ErlingHaalandto bolster his squad in the summer but he won’t be able to achieve his target as the managerial reign at Chelsea now belongs to Thomas Tuchel. The German tactician will have the transfer plans of his own ahead of the summer.

Frank Lampard had Declan Rice and ErlingHaaland on his transfer shortlist and Thomas Tuchel is likely to retain at least ErlingHaaland from that list ahead of the summer’s transfer window. ErlingHaaland is undoubtedly the hottest young striker in world football and a lot of clubs including Chelsea want to sign him from Borussia Dortmund. Haaland has a €75 release clause in his Borussia Dortmund but it won’t become active until next year. This means that clubs will have to meet any asking price set by Borussia Dortmund to priseErlingHaaland away from the club. For Declan Rice, Frank Lampard wanted him to return to Chelsea but that’s highly unlikely with Thomas Tuchel now in charge.
