'We Need More" - Frank Lampard Blasts Chelsea Over Poor Transfer Business So Far

Chelsea's top scorer, Frank Lampard is urging his former team to splash out after admitting he is baffled by their lack of signings and the sale of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United.

The Blues legend fears Antonio Conte‘s current squad is too small to seriously challenge for both the Champions League and retaining their Premier League crown.

Lampard, starting his new role as a BT Sport pundit, believes Sunday's Community Shield loss to Arsenal shows "there's something not quite right there".

The former England midfielder, 39, said;
"I'm sure Conte can go to the board and say he needs more players. 
"They need another central midfielder, and they need cover in the wing-back roles. 
'You look at the two teams there, and Chelsea have got almost half of what the Arsenal squad is. 
'If we're talking about quality, I still think Chelsea have that quality, but when Conte was at Juventus he used to do the same thing in the summer. He used to push the club to buy more players to move forward."
Lampard added;
"It was a strange one [to see Matic join United]. He was such a huge part of Chelsea's play last year alongside Kante at the base. 
"He let the wing-backs fly on and he allowed Pedro and Willian freedom to go forward."
