Frank Lampard has given an update on a possible move on Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz. Chelsea have been linked with the German teenage sensation for several weeks and rumours about a bid have become stronger and stronger. According to Lampard nothing has happened yet.
“He’s obviously a top player, but to carry on from my answer before I’m certainly not going to comment on other players at other teams. And it cannot be our focus. So, nothing to say.” When asked if an offer had been made, he said: “No. No bids have gone in.” Chelsea have already secured the signings of Hakim Ziyech (Ajax) and Timo Werner (RB Leipzig).
Chelsea will face Manchester City on Thursday as the Blues are ready to play their second game since the restart of the Premier League. Lampard will have almost a fully fit squad to choose from for the clash at Stamford Bridge as Fikayo Tomori and Callum Hudson-Odoi remain the only two first-team players unavailable.
