Frank Lampard’s agent has denied the England midfielder has been offered a new contract by Chelsea. Contrary to reports on Thursday suggesting Chelsea had began contract negotiations on a new deal after deciding not to let him leave in the summer, it now seems he could still be heading out of Stamford Bridge. Lampard’s representative Steve Kutner told The Sun: “Nothing has changed regarding Frank’s situation at Chelsea.”
Despite the January transfer window closing only nine days ago, the summer transfer rumours and gossip have already begun. Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic is Arsene Wenger’s lastest target after missing out on bringing Barcelona striker David Villa to Arsenal. According to the Daily Mirror, the Arsenal manager has opted to go for a younger target in the form of Montenegro hitman Jovetic.
In addition the paper reports: “Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue, Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina and Marseille defender Nicolas N’Koulou will also be watched in the coming months as the Gunners firm up their list of summer targets.”
