Chelsea make final decision on Zappacosta

Chelsea make final decision on Zappacosta

His return cannot come soon enough for Chelsea fans after he caught the eye with some precocious performances last season, but it will be fascinating to see if Lampard can accelerate his development as the expectations and hype increase.

That may give Norwich the edge, and Daniel Farke is believed to be ready to make a serious push for Drinkwater to help his side prepare for Premier League football.

During the 2018/19 campaign, the 29-year-old would feature just once all season.

The Sun state that Lampard feels the same, having evaluated Drinkwater during pre-season.


The former Leicester midfielder admits he is flattered by the interest from the Ligue 1 Champions but he insists he is happy at Chelsea and he is gearing for the upcoming season with the Blues under the management of Frank Lampard.

With Chelsea's two-window transfer ban under way for breaching rules in relation to youth players, Christian Pulisic is the only new arrival in Lampard's squad, putting him firmly in the spotlight as the successor to Hazard.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits he has no idea whether N'Golo Kanté will be fit in time for the start of the new season. "We are a team that has worked very hard but we need to be absolutely focused because it is going to be a tough game".

"Ross Barkley also had a good pre-season and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be back later on".


However, another player who might be shown the exit at Stamford Bridge this summer is Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Disturbing trends have appeared throughout pre-season, with Chelsea's full-backs' narrow positioning allowing for overlaps, which lead free runners to peel off the back and pick up the ball unopposed inside the area.

However, he struggled to make an impact on the field and when Sarri took over, the Frenchman found himself sent out on loan to AC Milan for the season and the same could happen again this season.
