Lampard confirmed last week that he also wants Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi to pen a new deal after the Blues have managed to keep Bayern Munich at bay.

Speaking after Chelsea’s pre-season friendly win over Reading, Lampard said: “I know the club are talking to Callum and Willian. They are both players I want in my squad.

“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.”
