As Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hinted in one of his recent press conferences, signing players in the January transfer window might not be in the best interest of the club, except it’s the right deal and for the right price.

Chelsea have been linked with a number of targets, and reports have linked Chelsea with centre-back targets. While Chelsea’s links with Nathan Ake have been dropped, the Blues have as well been linked with West Ham defender Issa Diop.

Reacting to the transfer links, Diop has revealed that he’s not in any negotiations with any club and isn’t thinking of switching sides this January.

Diop told Foot Mercato: “I am not in negotiations, I don’t care to know which clubs are interested in me. So for me, nothing really changes.

“Most of the time, it is friends of mine sending me screenshots to say to me: ‘Issa, look…’ I am not even the person who finds out first.

“Aside from that, that is the game of the transfer window, some things are true, some things are false. So honestly, I don’t pay too much attention to it.

“Honestly, I don’t really give a s*** about what is in the newspapers. I am not at all concentrated on that. It doesn’t enter my thinking at all.

“I leave people who are responsible to deal with that side. I just focus on football.”
