“I think Hakim will certainly be in place. Everyone of course has their opinion about that, but I think it’s a nice club for him.”
The imminent arrival of Ziyech with current options Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, Willian and Pedro already at Stamford Bridge will give Lampard an abundance of options to choose from.
And speaking on ESPN FC, former West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop said Lampard will have a selection dilemma on his hands with Hudson-Odoi especially.
“I like it, given his age and his experience,” he said.
