Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is to be offered £150m to spend in January if the club's transfer embargo gets lifted, according to a report.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is reportedly set to be offered £150m to spend in January if the club's transfer embargo is lifted.

The Blues were found guilty of multiple breaches of FIFA's guidelines concerning young, foreign players and they were accordingly banned from making any transfers until the summer of 2020, but their appeal will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on November 20.

According to The Sun, the former Derby County boss will be encouraged to spend on reinforcements if the appeal is successful, despite the club's youngsters stepping up remarkably and leading them to a fairly strong start to the season, both domestically and in the Champions League.

Chelsea have money available following the sale of Eden Hazard in the summer and it is believed that they are looking for additions in both attack and defence.

The report suggests that those near the top of Lampard's priority list are Crystal Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha, Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell and RB Leipzig hotshot Timo Werner.
