Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is not done with his transfers this summer according to Sky Sports reporter Dhamesh Sheth.

The imminent arrival of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen will take the transfer splurge at Chelsea this summer over the £200m mark but there could still be more arrivals.

Kai Havertz is a young German international whose transfer to Chelsea will set the Blues back to the tune of £90m including add-ons.

Dhamesh Sheth revealed that the Blues are interested in West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice who’s rated at £70m.

Declan Rice was at Chelsea until the age of 14 when he was released by the club. He was able to overcome that setback by establishing himself as a key player with the Hammers whom he joined immediately after his exit from Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard and Chelsea have already signed six players this summer with two made as free transfers.

Experienced defender Thiago Silva and young defender Malang Sarr have signed for Chelsea on free transfer.

The other four signings made till date are Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Xavier Mbuyemba and Ben Chilwell.

Kai Havertz is expected to be announced as the seventh signing of the summer in the coming days.

Former Chelsea defender Tim Cahill has stated that Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech should be held responsible for costing the Blues points since the beginning of the season.

The West London outfit have been inconsistent since the start of the Premier League seasons after dropping some points with the former defender insisting that the two new signings should be held responsible.

The Blues team invested about £108 million in acquiring the signature of the two players but they are yet to deliver the expected performances for Frank Lampard’s team.

Tim Cahill insists that the duo have been overindulgent with the ball at their feet as they spent more time with their tricks to dribble past 10 players instead of working with the team to ensure victory.

He stressed that the individual mistakes and errors for not focusing for 95 minutes. The former defender stressed that they need to know when to dribble and when not to if the team must get the desired result.

However, Kai Havertz has been able to score once and handed two assists from the five Premier League matches handed to him in the past. He was also in action against Man United on Saturday evening and failed to deliver a win for the Blues.

The latest report has revealed that former Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has now returned as a non-contract player for his former club Chelsea.

Petr Cech retired in 2019 when he was playing for Arsenal and returned for a management role only to be listed in Frank Lampard’s squad for the Premier League season.

The former Arsenal shot-stopper was only the technical advisor role at Stamford Bridge but there was a need for him to be back in the team and it is very likely he would be seen in the middle of the sticks again.

Before joining the North London outfit, Petr Cech was flying the colours of the Blues team for 11 years with over 300 appearances, winning four Premier League titles.

Chelsea have confirmed Petr Cech will be part of the squad as an emergency cover and as a non-contract player with the situation at the club.

The goalkeeping situation seems to have changed at Stamford Bridge as Edouard Mendy is now the first-choice ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga after he was unconvincing in his recent performances.

However, it is yet to be seen if an opportunity will be available for Petr Cech to have a new debut at the club or not.
