Lampard provides an update on Havertz deal

Frank Lampard has said that Chelsea has not made any bids for Kai Havertz. 

The Blues have been strongly linked with a move for Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Havertz but Lampard has downplayed the situation. 

Lampard said: “No, no bids have gone in.

“He’s obviously a top player, but I’m certainly not going to comment on other players at other teams.

“And it cannot be our focus. So, nothing to say.”

Lampard’s men have already signed Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and he was asked about how many more signings were the Blues planning to make in the summer. 

“I don’t know, because we have the games we need to complete before the window opens.

“That’s something we’ll broach when it comes around. So for the minute, our only focus can be on the games in hand.”

The boss also expressed his satisfaction after Willian and Pedro extended their short term deals to stay till the end of the season. Lampard has even higher hopes for Willian who he wants to keep at the club beyond this season. 

“Yeah we are still talking with the players, and Willian, in particular, we are talking with him,” Lampard said.

“I always felt confident they would remain, they’ve been fantastic professionals for the club, and servants in all senses.

“And when you have that level of professionalism within you, I think it’s a sign that they wanted to stay and see out the season at least.

“So we’ll carry on talking and see.

“But I think everybody’s focus now is on these next games, these individuals themselves and us as a club.”
