Lampard tight-lipped over Zaha
Frank Lampard wouldn’t be drawn over the possibility of Chelsea signing Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.
Following the Blues’ 1-1 draw with Brighton on New Year’s Day, the Chelsea boss was asked about the potential of Olivier Giroud being sent to Selhurst Park as part of a deal for Zaha, but he wasn’t about to give anything away .
“I wouldn’t talk about Zaha and the idea of that deal is something I have never even considered,” he said.
“If we have to do business we will do it in the way we see fit to try and make us better and that’s behind closed doors as opposed to just announcing who we might want to bring in.”
Werner conundrum for Blues
Frank Lampard is reportedly keen to pursue a move for £51million-rated striker Timo Werner, but has doubts over how it could affect Tammy Abraham.
Chelsea look set to do some big business during the January window, having had their transfer ban overturned.
And Lampard has set his sights on RB Leipzig frontman Werner , who has 18 goals so far in this season’s Bundesliga.
The Chelsea boss is keen not to halt Abraham’s development though, with the young striker flourishing after being made first choice striker this season.
