Jadon Sancho, Dembele and Zaha emerge top transfer target for Chelsea boss Lampard

- Jadon Sancho could be joining Chelsea this transfer window

- The Blues are also eyeing a move for Dembele and Zaha to fortify their attack

- Frank Lampard's men are fourth on the log with 36 points so far this campaign

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is reportedly ready to make a move for the trio of Moussa Dembele, Jadon Sancho, and Wilfried Zaha during this winter transfer window.

The Blues were unable to sign players last summer owing to the transfer ban placed on them by FIFA over the movement of underaged youngsters.

Other strikers who are on the radar of the 41-year-old are Timo Werner and Josh Maja as the Stamford Bridge outfit plans to fortify their attack this month.

According to SunSport, Chelsea are set to spend a whooping £150 million to sign new players before the end of January window.

The 22-year-old has scored 12 goals in 21 Premier League appearances so far this campaign - five behind Jamie Vardy.

Meanwhile, Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud who have struggled for playing time at the club might be leaving the club this month.

Both players are inferior to the English born of Nigerian descent under the new boss since his reign started this season.

Jadon Sancho could cost Chelsea between £100m and £150m and they may have to wait till the end of the season before moving for him.
