Great news! Lampard opens up and announces Chelsea talks to sign up world class midfielders
Frank Lampard admits Willian and Pedro are in talks over their Chelsea future following Hakim Ziyech’s arrival.
We managed to secure an early summer deal for the very impressive Ziyech last week, and the Ajax winger will make his arrival at the club when the summer transfer window opens up after the £37 million deal was officially wrapped up.
And there has been some big speculation that we will look to add another winger to the side at the end of the season, with the likes of Jadon Sancho and Jeremie Boga on the shopping list of Frank Lampard, who will reportedly have around £150 million to spend on new players.
Those signings would join make up half of the Blues’ widemen contingent next season alongside Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi, with £100k-plus-a-week Willian and Pedro left in the cold, as reports suggest that we will allow the Spaniard and Brazilian to pack their bags and depart the club.
But despite all the transfer speculation and the fact that Ziyech will be arriving, Lampard has come out and admitted that the hierarchy are in talks with both Pedro and Willian about possible new deals at the club, he told the Daily Express: “Conversations are ongoing with those players. They have both been successful players with the club.
“Both I found to be very professional and willing and wanting to work this year and help the younger players.
“And obviously get results which is the main thing. So regardless [of whether they stay], what they’ve done at the club is very well received from our end.”
We have offered , 31, a one-year extension, though the player is seeking a two-year deal and increase on his £110,000-a-week wages, with the likes of Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan all showing interest in the Brazilian, who has scored four goals in 24 appearances this season.
