Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has said that he wants forwards, Willian and Callum Hudson-Odoi, in his squad ahead of next season..”

Lampard explained that both Willian and Hudson-Odoi are key players in his squad, adding that he wants the duo to stay at Stamford Bridge.

Willian has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona, while Hudson-Odoi has drawn interest from Bayern Munich in recent weeks.

Speaking after Chelsea’s pre-season friendly 4-3 win over Reading on Sunday, Lampard was quoted by Metro UK as saying: “I know the club are talking to him [Willian]. Willian and Callum are both players I want in my squad.”

He added: “We’ve made some good moves this pre-season with Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek signing new contracts, two young players nailed down and the club are always trying to do that.

“From a football sense, I’ve made my ideas very clear. I’m working very closely with Marina [Granovskaia] and the board because these are two players that we want to stay for sure.”
