Lampard announces he wants midfielder signed up and Mourinho has hitman message for Chelsea
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that he wants Willian to stay, so PLEASE WATCH VIDEO
Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that Chelsea do not need to go out and buy a new striker, as they already have the impressive Tammy Abraham at the club.
Abraham scored 26 goals in the Championship this season, helping Villa reach the play-off final, where they clinched promotion against Derby at Wembley.
His performances over the course of the season has led to speculation that Lampard is ready to give him his chance at Stamford Bridge, especially as Chelsea are unable to sign any new players over the course of the next few transfer windows.
And Mourinho has told the club that they do not need to go out and try to acquire a new striker as they have Abraham at the club, he told Sky Sports: “You want a young striker – Tammy Abraham! He’s yours.
“ He knows the club. He was made at the club, he was educated at the club. He was on loan, he played already some matches in the Premier League, he plays in the Championship but Championship at the highest level with the responsibility to play at a big club like Aston Villa. He’s ready.
“Do you need to buy a young centre forward? No! And Chelsea were criticised many times with the number of players they had on loan, more than 30 players, 40 players, but now the moment arrived and they have answers like nobody else could have.
“They have the answers, so I don’t think it’s any problem for them. The only problem for them is obvious which is that they lost a phenomenal player. Eden Hazard was a special player for Chelsea and they lost him, apart from that I don’t see any problem for them.”[the_ad id=”1431″]
