  • Chelsea boss Frank Lampard warned ‘dream’ January transfer is ‘almost impossible’
    Chelsea are unlikely to be able to secure a deal with Leicester for the transfer of Ben Chilwell in January. The England international has been tipped to stay put, despite having impressed Frank Lampard with his performances over the past few seasons.
    The Blues are set to enter the market after seeing their transfer ban reduced after being unable to secure any deals during the summer.
    Having said that, Lampard is keen not to rush into any deals as he attempts to secure a top four finish in his first season as boss at Stamford Bridge.
    Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has given his thoughts on the transfer situation at Chelsea, and outlined Chilwell as a player that will not be moving over the next month.
    He said: ”Then there is the left-back situation, where their dream signing would be Ben Chilwell
    But again it would be almost impossible to sign him from Leicester, because they are not going to sell him.”
    Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers was forced to speak out on the rumours surrounding his key stars with their magnificent start to the Premier League season leaving them second after 21 fixtures.
    James Maddison is another Leicester player linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium, which the former Liverpool boss was keen to rule out.
    He said: “James is a talented player and he’ll be here in January and beyond.
    Nobody will leave in January, that’s for sure.
    “He’s a player we’re keen to remain here and help us on this journey over the next years.
    “James and his representatives are speaking with the club and these things take time.”
    Lampard opened up on his plans for the January transfer window at the end of December, insisting that nothing was decided in terms of possible spending.
    “We are certainly joined up on recruitment,” he said.
    “I know we haven’t done anything yet so there is no proof in that but we are joined up.
    “I have very close conversations with Marina [Granovskaia, director], Petr Cech [technical and performance adviser] and Scott [McLachlan], who is the head of our recruitment department.
    “They know what I want and I will be fundamentally in the middle of who and what we bring into the club.”
