Lampards warns Chelsea over making irrational signings this January transfer window.
"I think I should be because that’s where we’re at at the moment," Lampard said of whether he will be happy if Chelsea don't sign anyone. "If it feels right for us, then we’ll do it."
Some recent last-minute January deals have not worked out well, with the likes of Alexandre Pato and Gonzalo Higuain struggling while on loan.
Lampard was careful not to be critical of business done in the past, but admitted he doesn't want to enter the market for just anyone after a positive season so far.
"The players you mentioned there were top players. I think the idea of January being a time to buy players, it’s difficult for everybody – for players coming in, especially if they’re coming from a different league, for the club and for the settlement of the group," the Chelsea manager added.
"I think that’s why we have to think ultra carefully and I do care and consider the club and where we’re going. I don’t want to make some knee-jerk reaction to say ‘here’s my first big signing’ because we couldn’t sign anyone in the summer.
"No, I want to do the right thing for the club. That’s why if I do it I’ll try and consider all things. It will always be in communication with the club. Hopefully, it’s the best thing for us. Whether that’s more of a short-term option or a long-term option, we’ll also have to consider."
