“We absolutely want to help the squad; we have said it a lot. We want to make the squad stronger. I am aware everyone is trying to do the same thing and teams around us are working on their squads, getting competition in forwards areas. We know we need more competition, more of a clinical nature to us at the top end of the pitch. That’s a reality we have to understand. We must try and improve it. It’s not an easy window, but people are working towards trying to bring players in. I as a coach know we need to help it,” says Frank Lampard. [EFC]
