When asked how many recruits Chelsea will be chasing this summer, Frank Lampard chose to not comment.
He said: “I don’t know because we’ve got the games that we need to complete before the window opens.
“We’ll be broaching something about that when it comes around. So, our only focus for the minute can be on the games in hand.”
Meanwhile, Midfielder Kai Havertz’s string of impressive performances both for Bayer Leverkusen and Germany has placed the 21-year-old on the radar of some of the top teams in Europe.
Chelsea also has long been linked to a seven-cap midfielder move, but no bid has been forthcoming from Blues manager Lampard.
Lampard insists that Chelsea has not made a bid to Havertz for £75million-rated Bayer Leverkusen.
Asked if Chelsea made contact with Leverkusen, Lampard said: “No, there were no bids going in.
“Obviously he’s a top player but I definitely won’t comment on other players in other teams.
“And our focus cannot be on that. So, not to say anything.”
In related news, defender Antonio Rudiger of Chelsea reveals that he played a key role in signing Teammate Timo Werner of RB Leipzig from Germany.
“Because we have known each other for a long time, I spoke to him before,” Rudiger told. “We spoke a lot during the lockdown and he told me that he was keen to come to England. I did my bit then of course, what I had to do.”
“He’s a really big defensive threat,” he continued. “RB Leipzig is a more counter-attacking team but he’s similar to Vardy when it comes to attacking the defensive line. He has a lot of pace and if the defender is making a mistake and losing the ball, he’s going!”
