Chelsea chiefs blocked Lampard signing Fraser

Chelsea chiefs blocked manager Frank Lampard's move for Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser in January.

The talented winger is out of contract at the end of the season and will be free to sign for another club.

The Athletic reports Lampard was keen to offer him a way out in January.

Lampard approved an offer but when it came to making their move the Stamford Bridge hierarchy opted against making one.

Chelsea's dithering could be Tottenham and Arsenal's gain this summer with Fraser likely to become available.
