The ex-Blues player believes Lampard can form a deadly squad with the options at his hand.

According to the former


striker, Tore Andre Flo, the Blues will always be in line for a new frontman but he insists that Frank Lampard could build up his team by putting both

Tammy Abraham


Timo Werner

in their front-line.

Chelsea, who are struggling for consistency, are only using one attacker in their line-up system at the moment but Flo believes things can change when


forms a partnership between Abraham and Werner.  

Flo told



Olivier Giroud

’s transfer rumors, saying:

“There are a lot of rumors and it’s hard to comment on them until they become more than just rumors. But a club like Chelsea will always look to be in the market for a striker.”

He added on the potential of using Werner and Abraham together:

“I think they can work together.

“I don’t think they’ve quite found the right rhythm to maximise a partnership just yet, but I think they can do – there’s more to come.”

“As a striker you need goals and finally Werner found the net again and hopefully that can instil confidence and he’ll continue to score.”

“He’s more than capable of doing well in the league, it’s just about getting a few goals and getting that confidence up.”

Later Flo talked about the team’s inconsistency and the pressure that it has put on Lampard, saying: 

“Yes, the results have probably not been as good as we would have liked lately, it’s been up and down, but it’s such a strange season – we’ve seen many clubs doing really well and then suddenly fall, and vice versa.”

“Chelsea are no different and I really hope that Frank gets the whole season to prove himself and stay on to build what I think can be a very good team.”

“I think the aim should be to get a Champions League place for next season, so a top-four finish would be a success.”

“It looks unlikely that Chelsea will win the league, unless they go on a really good run and others stumble, so I think realistically another top-four finish would be a good result.”

“They could also go far in the Champions League as well which would be really important for the club and also for the fans.”

“A run in Europe could really show that the club is on its way back to former glories.”
