    Another week passes in lockdown and Chelsea fans are looking forward to when football can resume again.

    Boss Frank Lampard has already come out and said that the Premier League can only restart when safe to do so.

    But behind the scenes the wheels are in motion for a busy summer of activity – and Timo Werner continues to be a reported target for the Blues.

    In a boost for Bridge bosses, Werner has poured cold water on a potential switch to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

    He said: “Bayern are a great club, we don’t need to talk about it, and Hansi Flick has proven this season he is a really good head coach.

    “But if a move were to become an issue at some point, I would be more tempted by a move abroad than a move to Bayern.”

    Meanwhile, Pedro claims he has lots of offers for next season as his Chelsea contract winds down.

    The Spanish star looks certain to leave West London at the end of the campaign, along with Brazilian international Willian who is also out of contract.

    Pedro revealed: “The coronavirus situation affected everything, so at the moment we are waiting for a meeting with Chelsea.

    “I must meet with the club, but I have offers from many places too.

    “I know that the contract is concluding, but we have not yet sat down to discuss whether to renew and continue here or not.

    “I’m waiting for the meeting with the club, but am also open to listening to other offers.”

    And finally, a SunSport exclusive from Alan Nixon as Ryan Fraser looks set to force a move away from Bournemouth.

    Arsenal have previously been linked with the Scot, while Chelsea have also been interested.

    The winger and assist machine is reportedly ready to leave the club as soon as his contract expires – even if the season is extended.
