Lampard putting transfer thoughts aside

first_imgChelsea manager, Frank Lampard, said any thoughts about the transfer market have been put to one side as he prepares for two vital games in the quest for a top-four finish in the Premier League and a FA Cup final. Lampard says he is not thinking about adding to the signings of Ziyech and Werner, despite the club being in talks with Bayer Leverkusen forward Havertz. “I am not going to talk about Kai Havertz or any other player. I am looking at a game tomorrow that is so huge for this club. I am not thinking about players from other teams.” Ziyech revealed that Lampard played a key role in persuading the Morocco international to move to Stamford Bridge. Lampard hopes his passion for the club will rub off on any new arrivals this summer.Advertisement Loading… “If I work for this club I want to get the best out of the group that I have,” Lampard said. “If we look at bringing in players and I have to speak to them you just want to speak about the vision and what you want for the club. “When I get the opportunity to do that I will do that. Hopefully with a lot of passion, feeling and with an idea of what I want. “I remember being a player and having certain conversations like that at different times with managers. As a player you want to join somewhere that is going somewhere. You want to get to a target. “That’s the only way I will speak to players and even my own players. We all have to feel the vision and wanting to play for Chelsea is a positive one.”Manchester United Ask For Information On Ligue 1 Midfielderread also:Lampard: Solskjaer’s tactical change played into our handsManchester United have put in an enquiry for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Idrissa Gueye ahead of the summer transfer window, it has been claimed in France.
