Chelsea favourites to sign Ajax in-demand full-back

Argentine full-back Nicolas Tagliafico will reportedly sign a new contract at Ajax next week, however, will still be free to depart from the Dutch giants at the end of the 2020-21 season.

The 28-year=old defender was heavily linked with a switch away from his current team during the summer transfer window, however, the deadline passed with the South American full-back still in Amsterdam.

According to De Telegraaf, Tagliafico will soon sign a new contract with Ajax, extending his current deal until June 2023 in the process, however, he will be allowed to depart from the club next summer.

Lampard dismisses Klopp's assessment of Chelsea

Frank Lampard has shrugged off Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp installing Chelsea as Premier League title favourites.

Liverpool's title defence has already been besieged by a hefty injury list, though Klopp's second-placed Reds are level on points with leaders Tottenham.

Chelsea sit third and are now unbeaten in nine league games, with Klopp having hailed the Blues' "unbelievable" squad strength when marking out Lampard's men for glory.

Stamford Bridge boss Lampard was quick to shake off Klopp's tip however, insisting his third-place Blues remain a work in progress after their £220million summer recruitment drive.

Frank Lampard makes Kai Havertz prediction after Chelsea setback

Frank Lampard is backing Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz to come good after being struck down by coronavirus.

The German international enjoyed an excellent start to the season for the Blues after joining from Bayer Leverkusen over the summer in a £71m deal.

However, he tested positive for Covid-19 at the start of November which meant he had to face a spell on the sidelines.

He returned for the 2-1 Champions League win over Rennes and has gone on to play three more times since that fixture.

Lampard, speaking ahead of Tuesday night's European game with Krasnodar at Stamford Bridge, has backed Havertz to shine for the side in the next few months.
