Will Willian join Tottenham or Arsenal?
Chelsea winger Willian admitted he would be open to joining Tottenham or Arsenal next season, but denied having any contact with Spurs coach José Mourinho.
"It is really a difficult decision," he said. "I identified a lot with Chelsea, I have a lot of love for everyone in the club and for the fans."
"However, it's like I said before, if I leave Chelsea without problems and leave the doors open, it would be good to switch to a rival club."
"I don't know (if leaving London is a possibility), I like London and my family too.
"However, that is a question that I still don't know the answer to, whether I'm staying at Chelsea, moving to another London team or leaving England."
Lampard identifies his ideal signature
Chelsea coach Frank Lampard identified his “ideal signing” before the next transfer window.
The Blues are eager to continue strengthening their team to take advantage of the progress made in Lampard's inaugural campaign at Stamford Bridge's hideout.
Bleachers report they say the Blues see Leicester's Ben Chilwell as their ideal signing this summer.
Leicester is likely to play tough with Chilwell, who arrived at King Power Stadium.
The 23-year-old is signed until the summer of 2024 and is valued by the Foxes at £ 60 million.
Lampard personally requests the signature
Chelsea coach Frank Lampard is close to concluding his second summer contract with a £ 4.8 million offer to hire Derby's Max Bird.
Lampard gave Bird his league debut during his time in charge of Derby last season, with the young midfielder emerging as Philip Cocu's team starter in this campaign.
According TodofichajesLampard marked Bird as a possible summer bargain to reinforce his options.
It is reported that Lampard personally asked the Chelsea board to make an approach to signing Bird this summer.
And the report adds that Chelsea is willing to pay £ 4.8 million to secure a deal.
Chelsea in advanced negotiations
Chelsea are in "advanced negotiations" with striker Tammy Abraham over a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge.
Abraham, 22, scored 15 goals and made six assists in 34 games under Frank Lampard this season.
The four-team English international's £ 50,000-a-week contract is set to expire in June 2022, but Chelsea offered the striker a lucrative five-year contract worth £ 7.85 million a year (150,000 a week) .
"Chelsea are in advanced negotiations with Tammy Abraham for a new long-term contract until 2025. The Blues have offered him a salary of 8 million euros a year," tweeted journalist Nicolo Schira.
