Frank Lampard admits Chelsea will face a tough task attempting to replace Diego Costa if the striker leaves the club this summer.
“He’s a fantastic striker and we all saw that last season and since he’s been at Chelsea. He would be very difficult to replace, there’s no doubt about it,” Chelsea’s record scorer told Sky Sports News HQ.
“I don’t know where Diego Costa’s mind is, whether he wants to leave or not, that’s all speculation. One thing that is for sure, is that you’ve got a great striker in him.
“So, if he stays, brilliant, if he doesn’t, then you’ll have to go to the top end of the world’s strikers to replace him.
“He’s an all-round physical presence that also has the quality to get goals, that’s not easy to find in the modern day.”
