Andreas Christensen eager to stay and fight for Chelsea place

Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen is willing to stay and fight for his place.

Blues boss Frank Lampard was full of praise for Christensen after his performance in the 3-0 thrashing of Burnley at the weekend.

And The Athletic claims the player himself is keen to stay and fight for a place in the team.

Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus have all been linked with the Dane previously.

And AC Milan are the latest club to throw their hat in the ring. But Lampard appears keen for the 23-year-old to stay at the club.

Speaking after the Burnley win, the gaffer said: “Yes, I can rule it out [a move to AC Milan].

“I like Andreas as a player. I've always liked him. I used to train with him and saw the talent coming through."
