The 19-year-old is out of contract at the end of the Year and has also been offered a New deal by the Stamford Bridge outfit. Chelsea youngster Tariq Lamptey has been approached with pre-contract arrangements from Lille, Torino, and an unnamed Premier League club as he weighs up his potential.

The 19-year-old, who has made three appearances for the Blues this season, is out of contract at the end of the year and is free to go over terms with other clubs as he enters the final months of his bargain.

Chelsea are hopeful of maintaining the adolescent, with discussions ongoing regarding fresh provisions, though little details have meant no arrangement was reached.

Therefore, Target can affirm that a host of other clubs have made their interest known, with Paris Saint-Germain, Wolves and Nice also weighing whether to make their own offers to the full-back.

Should he stay in west London, Lamptey would face competition for a regular starting berth going forward, with Reece James has impressed considering making his Blues debut earlier this year.

James’ performances have seen him become one of several academy graduates to make a new deal in recent months alongside Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Fikayo Tomori.

The club is also eager to tie the likes of Billy Gilmour, Armando Broja and Jamie Cumming while new deals are being worked on for Tammy Abraham and Tino Anjorin as Frank Lampard proceeds to prioritise youth.

Abraham’s possible contract is proving hard to secure, but with the England international forward wanting wages closer to the £180,000-a-week bargain that Hudson-Odoi is on, although the winger only earns that amount if particular performance-related targets are met.

The January transfer window, meanwhile, is set to close on Friday, with Lampard having been defeated in his pursuit of new signings thus far in 2020.

Roma have demonstrated an interest in the prior Barcelona forward, even though it’s believed he was viewed as a second choice should the Giallorossi neglect to signal Barca child Carles Perez.

Perez is supposed to undergo a medical in Rome on Wednesday, meaning MLS sides Inter Miami and New York City FC’s only competition is set come in the kind of Japanese ensemble Vissel Kobe.
