Frank Lampard insists Chelsea must make grounds in this current window to make up for the loss of Eden Hazard last summer.
"There is no movement to speak of now," he told BT Sport. "We got a punishment in the summer and it is meant to hurt you.
"We lost certainly one of the biggest players in our history and one of the most effective and dominant players in terms of what he did. That is the situation.
"My job is to work every day on the training ground to make the players better and the other part for the club is how we move forward by bringing in players.
"We lost ground last summer, so we need to, for the short-term, push for this top four finish because I have a strong feeling where we can improve personnel-wise to take us forward. For me it's clear.
"The money of it is not my job but I have to be honest and truthful. Short term recruitment is something we have to get right."
