Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has given an update on the transfer reports involving the club and Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

Frank Lampard talked about Moussa Dembele during his chat with reporters after his Chelsea team convincingly beat struggling Burnley in Matchday-22  at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Chelsea are one of the clubs linked with a January move for young French striker Moussa Dembele.

The Blues boss played down those reports liking the club with a move for the former Fulham and Celtic player as he expressed his surprise at those transfer reports.

Apart from Chelsea, Moussa Dembele is also said to be a target for Manchester United.

Frank Lampard further said that the reporters will be duly informed if they sign any player and that the club is still a long way from making their first sign of the current January window.

Moussa Dembele has scored 10 goals for Lyon in the league and no other player has scored more in the division.

He also had three goals from cup competitions.

The Premier League target has become the main man at Lyon since the unfortunate injury suffered by talisman Memphis Depay.

Moussa Dembele is rated at £50m by his club.
