Chelsea was knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich with an embarrassing aggregate score of 7-1. It seemed they had forgotten to play football as Lewandoski made a record of having 3+ goals and assists in a single Champions League match.
Frank Lampard is a quick learner and he has already started planning for the next season. Chelsea had already signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner. Although Chelsea finished fourth last season, they conceded 54 goals in the Premier League. Lampard has been on the lookout to sign a new defender.
Chelsea has now signed Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell for €50m.
Chilwell is one of the most established and promising full-backs in the Premier League having made over 120 appearances for Leicester City since his debut as an 18-year-old back in October 2015.
Last season, he made 33 appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side and scored three goals as the Foxes finished fifth in the Premier League.
Welcome to Chelsea, Malang Sarr! ✍️— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) August 27, 2020
Now, Chelsea has signed another defender, this time Malang Sarr on a free transfer from Nice for five years. The 21-year-old joined the Ligue 1 side when he was 5 and became a regular in their first team at the age of 17.
Sarr is primarily a centre back but is also adept at playing at the left of a three-man defence. He made a total of 119 appearances for Nice and scored three goals.
The young French defender will be sent out on loan for the upcoming season to gain first team experience.
