Here is your Chelsea morning digest on Monday, January 11.

Dembele set for move

Reported Chelsea target Moussa Dembele is set to move to Atletico Madrid, according to Lyon’s sporting director Juninho.

Over 12 months ago now, Sky Sports reported that the Blues had a £34m bid rejected for Dembele – and now, a year on, he looks set to be leaving France, but not for west London. 

Juninho, speaking to Telefoot Chaine (via Get French Football News ), said: “There is a possibility (that Dembele leaves this month). 

“Moussa came to see me, he thinks that this is the moment to change teams, that he has lost a bit of motivation, this was not something we foresaw, I like him a lot.

Every word from Lampard

Frank Lampard has delivered his verdict as his Chelsea team ran out comfortable 4-0 winners over Morecambe in the FA Cup third round on Sunday afternoon.

Goals from Mason Mount, Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Kai Havertz secured a relatively straightforward victory over the League Two club at Stamford Bridge. 

Lampard was asked about a variety of topics post-match, including Werner being back on the scoresheet, his verdict on Havertz, the system he played and plenty more.

Lampard reveals Tomori decision

Lampard has confirmed that Fikayo Tomori is set to leave Chelsea on loan this month after being left out of the starting line-up in his side’s win against Morecambe.

Tomori has played very limited football this season – mainly down to the form of the Blues’ preferred central defensive partnership of Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma

According to recent reports, Premier League duo Leeds United and Newcastle United are keen on signing the 23-year-old on loan in January and Lampard may have now given them a big boost.
