Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has responded to Lyon striker Moussa Dembele transfer to Chelsea this afternoon in the press conference.

However, The 23 year old striker has been linked with a January move to Chelsea with Tottenham Hotspur also joining the chase for his signature following a longterm injury to Harry Kane.

Responding to speculation linking Chelsea with Dembele, Lampard said:

“He’s a player I know and the club know but I’m surprised to see his name pop up so regularly when it’s not popping up in my conversations so regularly.

There’s quite a few players in the last week that I could say the same about.

“We’re looking to strengthen in high areas and with goalscorers because it’s where we’ve been found pretty short in home games recently but they’re hard to find and I’ll only want to go that way if we know we’re improving the squad that we have already.

“Nothing is close at the moment, we’re not imminent and there won’t be any big news today or tomorrow.”
