With the transfer ban overturned, Chelsea are set for an exciting January window.
However, the bigger news is that one of their star players might also be well set to sign a contract extension. It is none other than Willian.
“He’s in talks with the club. He speaks with the club on the money side of it,” Lampard said.
“The experience helps when you have got a young team, when the other options are younger, experience certainly helps.
“All his team-mates love him – he’s a low-maintenance player to have in the squad; so yes I am really happy with him.
“He’s great for me, especially when he plays like he did the other day – it was an incredible performance.”
“He has that talent. I knew he had that talent before I got the job.
“If there was one thing I wanted from him at the start of the season it was a question of: ‘Can you score more goals because your talent says that you should do?’
“That means sometimes running into space behind defenders, and getting the other side, and he is doing all those things.
“The last year or two I have looked at him from afar and wasn’t sure how much he was enjoying it, whether he felt happy in games. A bit of body language, in and out sometimes.
