The Blues boss hinted last week that there would likely be more movement outside the club than inside.
But, following their Premier League loss to Manchester City on Sunday, pressure is now on Lampard to overcome his current crisis which has seen them withdraw from the title race.
And with the transfer window now open, there are a lot of rumors surrounding players joining and leaving this club.
Here are the latest Chelsea transfer rumors …
Haaland warning issued by Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke has warned Erling Haaland is unlikely to be leaving the club in the near future.
Haaland has been linked with moves to Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid in recent months, although he only joined Dortmund 12 months ago.
“I don’t think that’s going to happen,” Watzke told Kicker.
“Erling and his advisor Mino Raiola know what they have in us.
“I can only advise him to do things like Robert Lewandowski. Haaland has given himself the time to become an absolute world class player in Dortmund. You won’t be able to do it in a year.
“Because it’s clear that if Erling has to leave us at some point, then he’ll only go to an even bigger club, and a lot is not being considered.
“If you join a club like – just for an example – Real Madrid, you have to be world class. ”
Juventus confirms interest in Giroud
Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has confirmed that veteran Blues forward Olivier Giroud could be a potential target for him this month.
Giroud has found form in recent weeks but his future remains on the table, leading Pirlo to suggest he would be interested in the France international if he becomes available.
“It would be useful!” Pirlo told DAZN.
“The window opens tomorrow, we have already discussed with the club what we want to do and if there are any opportunities.
“Maybe an attacker who can turn with our attackers. ”
Frank Lampard bag the last
The pressure is mounting more than ever on Chelsea manager Lampard after the 3-1 loss to Manchester City on Sunday.
According to The Athletic, Lampard is now under serious pressure in the Stamford Bridge hot seat.
It is claimed the Blues bosses are ready to act if the poor results persist, with plans in place to find a replacement.
Lampard’s case has been compounded by tensions that have arisen from fringe members of his team who are not happy with the situation.
It is believed that a turnaround would be enough to save his job as they aim for a return to the top four.
