With less than a week to the closure of the January transfer window, Frank Lampard has told the Chelsea board they ‘need’ to galvanize his squad.
Chelsea were slapped with a two-window transfer ban which was halved meaning that Lampard is now able to sign players this month.
Despite being linked with a number of transfers including Edinson Cavani and goalkeeper Nick Pope, Chelsea are yet to complete any deals.
Speaking in a press conference after the 1-2 win over Hull City, Lampard sent a transfer message to the board, "There is no movement to speak of now.
"We got a punishment in the summer and it is meant to hurt you. We lost one of the biggest players in our history in Eden Hazard. That is the situation.
My job is to work every day on the training ground to make the players better. The other part is looking at how we can move forward by bringing in players.
"We lost ground last summer 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."
