Wow! Frank Lampard’s top target to undergo Chelsea medical in next 48 hours as £50m deal agreed.
The 23-year-old missed the final games of the previous campaign as Brendan Rodgers’ outfit lost control in the top-four race due to a heel injury.
Chelsea were eager to check it out before concluding the deal but the Daily Telegraph claim there are no long-term concerns.
He is doubtful for the Premier League opener against Brighton and Hove Albion on September 14 and has been left out of Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad due to the injury.
