6. Frank Lampard
Frank Lampard is arguably the best pound-for-pound signing of the Premier League era. Although Chelsea paid West Ham £11m for his services in 2001, that now looks like small change 13 years down the line.
Despite being a central midfielder, Lampard is Chelsea’s all-time top scorer. This remarkable fact is often overlooked and underplayed - it really is an extraordinary feat.
Lampard has scored ten or more Premier League goals in every season since the 2003/04 campaign, which is another breathtaking statistic. In 425 matches, the England international has hit the back of the net on 146 occasions.
The 35-year-old could leave Stamford Bridge this summer, and by then he could have four Premier League winners’ medals to his name.
