Chelsea have been strongly linked with moves for Wilfried Zaha, Ben Chilwell and Nathan Ake ahead of the January transfer window.

Asked about Chelsea’s interest in the three players, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard responded: “We want a top calibre of player who can improve us.

“I won’t hone in on those three but I’ve said before I’m happy with the squad. We have to look [at signing players] if we can.

“I will recommend players who can help us. I want players who want to come here and win and be a Chelsea player.”
