He now appears to have landed in London as he was pictured at the Novikov restaurant and Bar in Mayfair.

According to the report, Frank Lampard has already revealed his training plans for both Ziyech and Werner.

“In terms of the two players, individually, we need to make sure they arrive with good fitness and freshness levels for next season.”

Ziyech’s season at Ajax came to an abrupt end due to the coronavirus. With his season ending in March, the 27-year-old will need to get back to match fitness.

He scored 8 goals and an incredible 21 assists in just 35 games. The prospect of Werner and Christian Pulisic feeding off them is exciting.

Chelsea’s youngsters have shown this season that they have what it takes to step up when needed. By adding experience to the squad, Lampard is ensuring that there is a balance between youthful exuberance and experienced level-headedness.
