Frank Lampard has revealed Chelsea are keen to extend Willian and Olivier Giroud's contracts if the 2019-20 campaign resumes. The Brazil winger Willian and France striker Giroud’s contracts at Stamford Bridge are set to expire on June 30, and reports have constantly linked the pair with a move away from the west London club. But, Chelsea head coach Lampard insists that he hopes to continue managing both players until the season comes to an end if the English top-flight restarts. "It is still uncertain if and when play will get underway. We have big players [out of contract] so that's something I'm obviously looking at very carefully," he told Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp.

"The ones who are out of contract here have been great servants for the club, and actually have a lot of feeling for the club. "Of course, they'll be concerned about themselves, in terms of how training is now is and if the pre-season is a rush they're going to have to make sure they're alright. “So, it's going to have to be something we have to look at, hopefully, we can make that arrangement can be made so they can stay with us. I would love the squad to look as it has all season, but we'll have to see how that works." Chelsea's last match was their 4-0 win against Everton at Stamford Bridge on March 8 - a match that saw Giroud and Willian both hit the target.
