The Blues are now in pole position to sign Germany sensation Havertz, with other potential suitors pulling out of the race due to the €100 million (£90m/$112m) price tag being placed on him.

"I'm obviously very disappointed as we all are here and of course Billy himself".

Lampard, speaking to the press ahead of third-placed Chelsea's match against Sheffield United on Saturday, praised Gilmour for the impact he has had this season. The Chelsea boss is said to be hopeful that the addition of Havertz can transform the Blues into Premier League title contenders in the near future.

"Some I will decide to speak to more than others or feel like I have to give reasons why".

Closer to home, Italy global Jorginho once again finds himself being linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge.

'A good professional will be unhappy that they're not playing but will deal with it in the right way, which he has done, ' said Lampard of the 28-year-old.

Buttler, who overturned being lbw to Holder for five, fell for nine when bowled through a huge gap between bat and pad by Joseph. Archer earlier made 23 with the bat as England was bowled out for 313 in its second innings after resuming the day on 284-8.

"Billy Gilmour's come in but he's a young man learning the game and that's a lot to ask, but he'll get some game time". "To be honest, it is irrelevant what happens next season".

The German forward has enjoyed a brilliant season with Bayer Leverkusen, scoring 17 goals in 43 games across all competitions.

Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour will be out for up to four months after undergoing knee surgery, head coach Frank Lampard has confirmed.

"I think going into the end of the season, and it won't be a long end to the season, he'll have some decisions to make about who stays and who goes because there's no doubt about it, they've spent big money and I think they want to go again for the boy from Leverkusen".

"He proves it in training and when he plays for me". I have spoken about him before the last game and there is no point to prove for Jorginho. Simply these things are the selection.

"It would have been a different answer if you'd asked me six weeks ago but I just think United the way they've found some form, they're blowing teams away. That doesn't change and I am very happy with him".
