Wilfried Zaha

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has played down transfer rumours linking the Blues with a January swoop for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

The Blues have been involved in a possible £80m swoop for Ivorian international star Zaha in the media in the United Kingdom.

Frank Lampard downplayed the Zaha to Chelsea transfer reports during his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of the Premier League clash with Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge later this weekend.

The Chelsea legend went on to state the profile of the players being targeted by the club ahead of the winter transfer market in January.

According to him, Chelsea are after top players that will improve the team ahead of the second half of the season.

Chelsea are free to sign players after their transfer ban was lifted upon their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

The Blues had been handed a two-window transfer ban by FIFA with the club serving the first transfer window ban in the summer.

CAS waived the second transfer window thus paving the way for Chelsea to sign players in January.

The likes of former player Nathan Ake of Bournemouth, Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, and Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha have been linked with the club.
