Frank Lampard has revealed his excitement at being able to welcome Hakim Ziyech to Chelsea in the summer after the Blues signed the Ajax midfielder.

Chelsea have confirmed they have reached an agreement to sign the Moroccan winger in the summer, with Ziyech expected to sign a four-year contract.

I know he’s not coming now but I think it’s exciting for us as a club and for the fans, they know that he’ll be here next year.” Some eyebrows may be raised about why Chelsea waited until after the January transfer window to complete the signing of Ziyech, but Lampard confirms that he had to respect the selling club.

“We’re always on the lookout, we’re always working together to try and see how we can improve, and I think those improvements could be needed maybe in the summer, but we’ll have to try and make sure we get the right ones.” Chelsea’s acquisition of Ziyech may push Pedro and Willian out of the door at Stamford Bridge come the summer, with one Sky Sports pundit explaining why he thinks the pair will move on.

“I think he’s a fantastic player and first came onto my eye line in their run in the Champions League last year,” Lampard told Sky Sports News.

“I thought he was one of their standout players, of course – particularly in the games against Tottenham, watching him play.

But that’s done, and now we have him for next season, so yeah, pleased with that.” Asked whether Ziyech would be the first of many new signings in the summer, Lampard insisted his focus was purely on the present, as the team look to book their place in next season’s Champions League.
