Chelsea star Lampard snubs Everton move as Arsenal, Man Utd and Spurs show interest
Chelsea’s midfield maestro Frank Lampard has snubbed a three-year contract deal from Everton as other Premier League clubs circle ahead of his imminent summer exit from Stamford Bridge. Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are on the list among other Premier League clubs who are interested in acquiring the 34-year-old’s services.
Frank Lampard has been asked to find a new home from the European champions, who are interested in bringing in a new set of legs in place of the veteran. Dozens of clubs from around the world have approached Frank Lampard with contract proposals, but none have been able to acquire his signature.
Reportedly, Frank Lampard prefers a move to MLS in the United States rather than staying on the bench of another Premier League club. David Beckham’s departure from LA Galaxy means the MLS outfit will be in search of a new midfield star before the new season begins.
Rife rumors from United States suggest Frank Lampard has been approached by a delegation from the LA Galaxy during the winter transfer window. LA Galaxy will have to rival with interest from a number of Serie A clubs if they want to sign in Frank Lampard.
Frank Lampard will be one of the most sought after players after his contract with Chelsea ends this summer. The England international, who has been with Chelsea since 2001, has been at the heart of many titles at trophies at Stamford Bridge.
The midfield legend has been one of the top performers in the Premier League in his 12 years at Chelsea. Frank Lampard is looking on-field action rather which is why he turned down the £150,000-a-week deal contract proposal from Everton.
Frank Lampard scored his 10th goal of the season in all competition in Saturday’s 5-1 victory over Southampton in the FA Cup. The Old Guard of Chelsea is one of the three set for an away move. John Terry and Ashley Cole are also in the mix for a surprise away move.
John Terry is suffering from a mystery injury that has kept him on the bench for most of the season. Meanwhile, Ashley Cole and Chelsea continue to negotiate over a contract extension. Both players have already been linked with a number of foreign clubs.
Frank Lampard has scored 192 goals and provided 130 assists in 571 appearances at Chelsea over the span of 12 years at the club.
