Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva has been offered a two-year contract and is expected to sign the deal over the coming days.

Chilwell will be a big upgrade on Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmeiri so he should be an excellent signing for Lampard while the Londoners are also reportedly closing-in on the free transfer signing of centre-back Thiago Silva.

The England global left-back has moved to Stamford Bridge in a deal worth in excess of £50m.

Negotiations are continuing over a club record £90m deal for Kai Havertz, the Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder, as Chelsea move to take their spending this year over the £220m mark.

Chelsea sealed fourth place and a Champions League spot at the expense of Leicester on the final day of the Premier League season in July.

Chilwell is Chelsea's third addition of the summer after the arrivals of winger Hakim Ziyech, 27, from Ajax and striker Timo Werner, 24, from RB Leipzig. "I'm looking forward to being a part of this young, dynamic squad led by Frank Lampard as we challenge for honours next season", he told the club's official website.

Havertz has always been linked with a move to Chelsea FC this summer and he would add some extra competition in the attacking positions at Stamford Bridge, with the German having netted 12 goals and made six assists in 30 Bundesliga games last season.

He could miss the start of the 2020-21 campaign after sustaining a heel injury towards the end of the last season, but Chelsea medical staff are confident there are no major issues.

The Brazilian global played his final game for Paris Saint-Germain against German giants Bayern Munich in the Champions League final last weekend.
