Chelsea linked with Derby midfielder Max Bird

Chelsea are being linked with Derby County midfielder Max Bird.

Blues boss Frank Lampard is considering an approach for Bird.

He and assistant Jody Morris are both aware of Bird's potential having spent over 12 months at Pride Park Stadium and monitored his development.

In fact, Lampard handed Bird his first league appearance against Swansea in December 2018 and the midfielder has gone from strength-to-strength ever since.

Football Insider claims the Blues are plotting a summer move for the teenager and regard him as a young player of 'enormous potential'.
