London next? Atletico Madrid defender Gimenez admits being Chelsea mad growing up

Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez has spoken of his admiration for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

The Uruguay international has been linked with a summer move to Stamford Bridge.

"I would have liked to play with Lampard," he said in an interview with LaLiga.

"I always used to watch Chelsea as a kid, loved them."
