Frank Lampard spoke to reporters on Wednesday ahead of Chelsea’s match against Manchester City. The Blues boss was asked about a number of issues, including the futures of Willian and Pedro and reports a bid has been made for Germany winger Kai Havertz. Here are three things we learned….
Callum Hudson-Odoi is still not fit
“We’re all the same as we were for Aston Villa. Fikayo Tomori is still probably about a week away from training properly with us. Callum Hudson-Odoi is still searching for fitness. He’s fit but not match fit yet.”
Chelsea are still discussing a new contract with Willian
“We’re still talking. “I really don’t want to get into (what might happen) beyond this season. I want Willian to play his best football for the games we’ve got remaining. Behind the scenes we can talk. I get on very well with Willian and the club get on very well with him. We’ll see what happens with that one.”
Chelsea have NOT made a bid for Havertz
“No. No bids have gone in. He’s obviously a top player but we’re certainly not going to comment on other players from other teams and it cannot be our focus. Nothing to say.”
