Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has been heavily linked with a move to London Blues and he is a firm fan of Frank Lampard and wishes he could have played alongside him.

Chelsea

have

Abraham

,

Werner

, and

Giroud

in the attacking line and manager

Lampard

looks to close the gap on league leaders Liverpool.

Haaland

was asked to name a player he would have liked to play with and said: "

Frank Lampard

."

Haaland has the same opinion as Chelsea’s Ziyech who joined the club in the summer.

Ziyech

said: "

In his time he was such a big player and he was a midfielder so I can learn a lot from him. In that regard, I have a lot to learn

.

Chelsea are sitting in fifth place of the Premier League table, six points behind League leaders Liverpool, and they face the Gunners on Boxing Day.

Ben Chilwell and Ziyech are sidelined due to injury and probably will not travel with the team to Emirates to play against out of form Arsenal.

"

They are both doubtful,

" explained Lampard.

"I can’t give you an answer at the moment. I’m not sure if they will be fit for either game.

"Hakim Ziyech won’t be fit for Arsenal."

On Ziyech, Lampard added: "

He had an injury at the start of the season and he’s just got another muscle injury. You have to wait for it to recover

.

"It’s not a long-term concern, we hope to have him back within the next week or so, and hopefully offering what he was before."
