In June, the summer transfer period will reopen, and Frank Lampard will complete his brief temporary managerial assignment for the team.

“Malo Gusto, the Brazilian Andre Santos, and the Argentine Enzo Fernandez arrived from Benfica. They acquired Mudryk, a Champions League player with no prior Premier League experience.
