Chelsea coach Frank Lampard wants to bring in a striker to help the team become more ruthless.

The Blues sold Eden Hazard to Real Madrid in the summer and need goals.

Tammy Abraham has impressed up front but Lampard wants to add more firepower.

“I will look at all areas of the team but I think it was quite clear in the summer that you lose Eden Hazard, who was a huge part of scoring or creating our goals last season and the season before that,” explained Lampard.

“I think we’ve found ways as a team where we can still be competitive. We’ve shown that in the league and now the Champions League. But if we’re looking at if we can get even better, can we get better in forward areas to help the idea of being more clinical, then I think we’ll always look at that.

“We’re just not converting enough. Some of that is to keep working and I’m not here to criticise anybody because we’ve just qualified from a really tough group to get through to the next stage of the Champions League. But we have standards here and I know how much the players also want to be successful. It’s very clear, so we’ll keep working towards it.”

Chelsea qualified after beating Lille 2-1 on Tuesday night and could face Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain or RB Leipzig in the last 16.
