Frank Lampard has commented on speculation linking duo Angel Gomes and Declan Rice to Chelsea this summer. 

Gomes will be released from Manchester United after failing to agree a new contract at Old Trafford, while Rice - a former Chelsea academy product - has been linked with a return to the club. 

There had been reports that Chelsea were ready to offer Gomes a contract but Lampard has flat out denied all interest.

"I can elaborate on that [Gomes] in the sense that it has never been mentioned in my end, so that's it," said the Blues boss on Tuesday in his pre-West Ham press conference.

He also elaborated on Declan Rice and refused to talk on players of other clubs until the season is over.

"Declan Rice is a good player, but there is no talk. Until these games are finished, I will have nothing else to say on players," added Frank.

"All we are focused on is playing against West Ham tomorrow and trying to get a good result. It is a special game, in terms that we want three points.’
