Chelsea are interested in signing the Brazilian midfielder Gerson this summer.
The player has been linked with Spurs as well but reports claim that Chelsea have now joined the race.
The Flamengo midfielder is valued at around £30m and Chelsea should be able to afford him without any problems.
Jorginho has been linked with a return to Italy this summer and if that happens, Lampard will need another deep lying midfielder.
Gerson has the ability to fill that void. He showed his quality against English opposition during this year’s club world cup games and he would be a superb signing.
It will be interesting to see if Chelsea can beat Spurs to the signing now.
Tottenham could use someone like Gerson as well.
The Brazilian is good enough to play for both teams and it remains to be seen where he ends up.
Chelsea have more resources and they might be able to offer him Champions League football next season.
Jose Mourinho’s side are currently outside the top four and they have a limited budget as well.
Chelsea have been very active in the market this summer. They are set to bring in Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and they have already signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax.
They have been linked with the Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell as well.
If Lampard can strengthen his side considerably this summer, the Blues might just be able to push the likes of Liverpool and City for the title.
