Lamps opens up and address rumours about possible signing of Havertz and possible Chelsea exit of Jorginho
Frank Lampard addressed transfer speculation surrounding Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz and Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.
Lampard knows that he needs to keep on improving his side in the summer if he wants to close that gap on the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City to challenge for that Premier League title.
We all know that Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech have both been brought in to help improve the attack, but Lampard is still reportedly keen to add the exciting Havertz to the side in the transfer window.
With 37-goals in the last few seasons and a whole host of big clubs circling for a potential deal, Havertz is one of the brightest talents in the game and a player that many fans would like to see arrive for £80 million in the summer.
Lampard was asked about such speculation ahead of Saturday’s Premier League fixture at Sheffield United, but kept his cards close to his chest.
“Unfortunately it’s another answer from me, that that is not something I want to broach at this moment in time,” Lampard said on the Metro.
“My focus is completely on the game. So, I don’t want to give you any ifs, buts or maybes for the summer, my focus has to be on the here and now.”
Closer to home, Italy international Jorginho once again finds himself being linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge, with reports suggesting that he is keen to make that move back to Italy and link-up with former boss Maurizio Sarri.
But Lampard again refused to comment on his future: “Again, I keep getting asked about next season,” he added
“To be honest, it is irrelevant what happens next season.
“These final few games will define how we look at this season and look forward to next.”[the_ad id=”164″]
