Chelsea boss Lampard leaning on Ziyech as he plans Onana bid

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is pumping Hakim Ziyech for information on former Ajax teammate Andre Onana.

Onana is seen as a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga and is available for £30m.

The Athletic says the relationship between Chelsea and Ajax is said to be strong after they negotiated a deal for Ziyech.

The attacker would also be able to provide the west Londoners with an extensive scouting report having been Onana's team-mate for four years.

Dean Henderson, of Manchester United, has also been linked with Lampard's side because Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to keep faith with David De Gea next term, despite a series of high-profile errors.

That means Onana is the most realistic target and he could be the man who started the 2020/21 campaign between the sticks next year.
