Chelsea Boss Lampard Provides Fresh Update On Fikayo Tomori Transfer Links

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has been linked with another loan move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.

According to reports, Chelsea's Premier League rivals Everton are interested in acquiring the England international’s services.

But Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hinted that the 22-year-old won't be leaving west London.

Ligue 1 side Rennes are also said to hold an interest in taking Tomori on loan this campaign.

Lampard, however, seemingly doesn't have any intention of letting the centre-back leave the club in this transfer window.

Speaking after Chelsea's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool, in which the centre-back came on at half-time, Lampard said: ‘Tomori did really well and he hasn't played for a while.

I have got confidence in him

“I hope he feels the trust in him. I have got confidence in him.

“There will be times against a team like Liverpool you have to be solid, we have had little time on the training pitch. We will get better and better.”
