Chelsea were banned from signing players in Lampard’s first transfer window, but that restriction was lifted in January 2020.

Lampard also wanted Hakim Ziyech to sign last January but struck a deal in February to bring him in before the start of the season.
Will Aubameyang go to Chelsea? That would mean winning the Champions League at the expense of his legacy among Arsenal fans.
Aubameyang was certainly crucial in Arsenal’s win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final in August, and his team-mates Eddie Nketiah called him “Outstanding” in September.
Maybe that trophy would save Lampard from the pressure that has built up in recent weeks and looks set to lead to his sacking.
