It’s the January transfer window and every club is trying to get the best deals and strengthen their side at this crucial point of the season.

Chelsea are yet to make any signings so far this window, but Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is already closing in on a move to Inter Milan, and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that the deal could happen soon.

However, recent reports have claimed that West Ham are keen on Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley, but Lampard has insisted that the midfielder is an important part of his team and won’t be leaving the club.

Also, Lampard has ruled out any likely departure for Willian and has revealed that the club are keen to tie him down to a new deal.

Lampard told reporters: “There is no talk here of Ross Barkley going anywhere. He is our player. He has played the last couple of games and done very well.

“There have been certain circumstances why Ross hasn’t featured as much this year, but I have a lot of faith in him. That was news I heard like everyone else this week, and no feeling towards it.

“Olivier Giroud we know there may be something that could happen. The good thing about Oli is that he’s so experienced. I have a really good relationship with him, as do the club, so if all circumstances are right that may happen, but it’s not, so while it’s not he’s our player.

“Willian is not going anywhere. We know his contract is up at the end of the season, he’s in conversation with the club, which are still ongoing. There is no news on that but he’s certainly our player now.”
