Lampard reveals he's been 'very much impressed' with Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

Lampard reveals he's been 'very much impressed' with Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

"In terms of Kurt Zouma, he's a very good defender for us, very good player, very good person and professional".

Leicester are reportedly keeping tabs on the England global to replace Harry Maguire, should he leave this summer, and Everton should look to move fast if they want the 26-year old in order to steal him away from the Foxes. We wanted to come out with a win, but I'm definitely happy.

"We were not allowed play our own football". My job now is to work hard in pre-season with them.

"We are competitive with the centre-backs we have in the team and he had a very good season at Everton".

Although Pulisic officially joined Chelsea from Borussia Dortmund in January, for £57.6m, he was loaned back out to the German giants for the second-half of the season - as they just missed out on the Bundesliga title. He added, "Everybody knows I have a keen eye for the younger players in the Academy".

He's signed a new five-year deal as well this summer to highlight the club's faith in him and the pieces of the jigsaw appear to be coming together for him. He is also expected to join the team in its pre-season tour, but it is not clear yet when the United States of America global will arrive in Japan.

The Blues missed N'Golo Kante in midfield - the Frenchman is continuing his recovery from injury - while Tammy Abraham and Kepa Arrizabalaga were also absent. "I don't envisage him being too long and hopefully will take part in one of the games while we are here".

New Blues head coach Lampard has introduced Mount to the Chelsea first-team during pre-season and revealed he will be around for the upcoming campaign. He also became the club's highest goal scorer with 211 goals in a much-decorated career at the Bridge, before leaving for Manchester City.

Marina Granovskaia has good words for Mount and expects him to play a vital role next season. I saw that past year. However, they were beaten by Aston Villa there.
