Lampard offers update on Willian’s future after Chelsea confirm Ziyech signing

February 15, 2020 By Ali M.
The Blues boss was asked whether the Brazilian is surplus to requirements due to the incoming Ziyech.

Chelsea recently confirmed the signing of Ajax ace Hakim Ziyech, an addition which has been celebrated – and rightfully so – by the supporters. However, this has raised questions over the future of Willian.

The Moroccan ace will arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer and will be a Blues player for the upcoming season after the London giants struck a $43M deal. The 26-year-old is one of the most highly-rated players in the Dutch top-flight and was a crucial figure in Ajax’s unforgettable march to the Champions League semi-finals last season.

The North African is a proven goalscorer and playmaker, possessing an eye for both finding the back of the netting and setting up team-mates. As a result, many now wonder whether the likes of Willian and Pedro will be deemed surplus to requirements, given that both of their contracts expire this summer.

However, Frank Lampard has touched upon this topic, insisting that this is not the case. Given that the Premier League is a tough league to adapt to, Chelsea are still keen on retaining the services of the Brazilian and Spaniard.

When asked if Willian and Pedro are no longer needed at Stamford Bridge, Super Frank said (as per Goal): “No it doesn’t.

“Conversations are ongoing with those players. They have both been successful players with the club.”

Willian has been linked with an array of top European sides despite being 31. Barcelona were reportedly keen on the Brazilian while Juventus appear to be the favorites at the moment – the Italians cannot pass on a free transfer.

Lampard's side will return to action in the Premier League this Monday with a crucial clash against Man United. The London giants will host the Red Devils with the sole aim of winning all three points and strengthening their grip on the fourth and final Champions League spot.
