The likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich have all been linked with the playmaker, who has scored six goals for Leverkusen since the return of Germany‘s top flight in May.
Chelsea, though, haven’t yet made a concrete offer for Havertz, with Lampard describing the forward as a “top player” but telling reporters ahead of his side’s Premier League meeting with Manchester City that no bid has been lodged.
He said: “He’s obviously a top player, but to carry on from my answer before I’m certainly not going to comment on other players at other teams. And it cannot be our focus. So, nothing to say.”
When asked if an offer had been made, he added: “No. No bids have gone in.” The west Londoners face Pep Guardiola’s City side in what is their second game of the Premier League restart, with Chelsea having beaten Aston Villa 2-1 on June 21 to boost their hopes of finishing in the top four.
Lampard will have almost a fully fit squad to choose from for the clash at Stamford Bridge on Thursday as Fikayo Tomori and Callum Hudson-Odoi remain the only two first-team players unavailable.
The Spaniard has agreed a pre-contract with Roma although is willing to risk injury and see out the season with Lampard’s side, with Willian, whose long-term future remains unclear, also committing to a short-term extension.
Lampard refused to discuss the 31-year-old’s position at the club beyond the 2019-20 season, with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United having been linked with signing the Brazil international on a free transfer.
Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League table, five points ahead of the Red Devils, who face Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
