Frank Lampard makes prediction about summer Chelsea signings
Frank Lampard says Antonio Conte will be fully backed by Chelsea's board in the summer transfer window
Frank Lampard believes that Antonio Conte will be fully “backed” by Chelsea’s board in the summer transfer window.
Conte has enjoyed a brilliant first season at Stamford Bridge and saw his side crowned as Premier League champions on Friday night thanks to their 1-0 win at West Brom.
Their turnaround this season has been in remarkable contrast to their struggles last term, when they ended up 10th and without a trophy.
Chelsea have already secured their qualification for next season’s Champions League and Conte is likely to already be thinking about which players to sign to bolster his squad.
And former Chelsea star Lampard feels that Conte will have the full backing of the Chelsea board this summer.
Speaking on Sky Sports on Friday night, Lampard said: “I think Conte is going to be backed [in the summer transfer window].
“I think he does need backing. It’s a great squad of players they have there but maybe [they need] a freshening up.
“Don’t lose your best players and then maybe add one or two at the top end.”
Chelsea will take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month as they look to finish the season with a domestic double.
