Lampard provides injury update on Tammy Abraham


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided a fresh update on the fitness of Tammy Abraham following the Blues’ 2-1 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League.

The England international missed the West Ham United game with a hip problem but he was able to make his comeback against the Villains on Wednesday night where he bagged the opening goal.

However, he was unable to complete the 90 minutes as he was substituted with a possible knee concern but Lampard has dismissed suggestions that he could miss the forthcoming league clash against Everton.

In a press conference covered by Football.London, he said: “It doesn’t seem too bad. Tammy at the moment is Tammy. A striker near the top, showing his all round game. A personality in the dressing room.”

Abraham has been the stand out performer for the Blues in the attack with 12 goals and four assists and he will be hoping to continue the good form on the trip to Merseyside this weekend.

Chelsea are reportedly confident that they can beat the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in the pursuit of Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho.

The England international has been a consistent performer for the Bundesliga side over the past two years and he has already bagged seven goals and nine goals for the club this term.

Despite this, there has been a sense of uncertainty regarding the attacker’s future a the club with manager Lucien Favre recently criticising him in public for his attitude.

According to Goal.com, the Blues are eyeing a swoop for the former Manchester City graduate and they are prepared to break their transfer record with a £100m plus bid.

It is added that Sancho shares a close relationship with fellow compatriots Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi from the England youth ranks and the Blues are aiming to lure the teenager with the influence of the duo.

Chelsea have already served nearly half of their year-long transfer ban but they are increasingly positive of winning their appeal to sign new players next month.

Meanwhile, Dortmund have made the decision to keep hold of Sancho until the summer at the least and it remains to be seen whether their stance changes during the forthcoming transfer window.

German giants Borussia Dortmund have no plans of parting ways with Jadon Sancho in the New Year amid the speculated interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.

The England international has been reported to be unsettled due to the recent criticism of his attitude from manager Lucien Favre and there have been claims that he could leave the Bundesliga side in the New Year.

According to Bild, Dortmund have no desire to cash in on their prized asset at the turn of the year and they are prepared to wait until the summer before considering his future.

Manchester United and Real Madrid have recently been linked with a £100m swoop for Sancho and reports have also claimed that Chelsea could join the race once their transfer ban concludes.

Chelsea are not permitted to make any new signings until July 2020 but they are said to be confident of reducing the transfer ban after making their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Chelsea offer out-of-favour striker to AC Milan?

Giroud set for move to Serie A?
Football Transfer Centre


Chelsea have reportedly offered AC Milan with the chance to sign Olivier Giroud on a cut-price deal when the transfer window reopens next month.

The Frenchman has received limited first-team action under the guidance of Frank Lampard and he only made his second league start of the season last weekend.

That decision came as a result of Tammy Abraham‘s injury setback and Giroud is well aware that he will be dropped when the England international makes his return in the near future.

According to Calciomercato, the Blues are more than willing to offload Giroud in the New Year and they have presented the Rossoneri with the chance to sign the former Arsenal man.

The Serie A outfit are currently looking at a reunion with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is available on a free transfer but reports indicate that they could turn their attention to Giroud, should the move fall through.

AC Milan’s cross-town rivals Inter have also been linked with the marksman in recent weeks. Antonio Conte, formerly of Chelsea, is keen on adding competition to Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku for the striker positions.

Lampard to take late decision on Abraham’s return


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that Tammy Abraham will be offered with every opportunity to prove his fitness ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.

The England international picked up a hip problem during the Champions League clash against Valencia last month and he has since missed the Premier League meeting against West Ham United, where the Blues succumbed to a surprise defeat.

Speaking ahead of the Villains clash, Lampard has indicated that his striker is still in a bit of pain and a late fitness test may determine his involvement against Dean Smith’s side.

“We are giving him every opportunity to play tomorrow. We will make the call tomorrow, he has a little bit of pain. He was in good form, he is always keen, he is trying his best,” he told the club’s website.

The west London giants have lost back-to-back games in the Premier League since the international break. This has reduced their advantage for the fourth position to just six points.
