1pm Chelsea transfer news LIVE: Thiago Silva in contract extension talks, Lampard fumes at Mount critics


Chelsea booked their spot in the Champions League last 16 with a 2-1 win over Rennes last night.

Callum Hudson-Odoi gave the Blues the lead before Serhou Guirassy clawed one back in the 85th minute to make it 1-1.

But super sub Olivier Giroud freak winner in stoppage time saved Frank Lampard’s men from humiliation.

Meanwhile, club legend Joe Cole had TV viewers in hysterics during the half time break of the club’s Champions League clash in Rennes.

Cole, who was watching on as pundit for BT Sport, was not impressed at the interval and amusingly called for Lampard to ‘smack’ some bums of his players.

He said: “It’s the perfect opportunity for Frank to get into the lads at half-time, and wake them up a little bit.

“You are winning away from home in the Champions League, which is fantastic.

“But he’ll use this opportunity to just give his players a little smacked bum, to let them know we’re seven games unbeaten, but you have to concentrate at all times.”

In other news, Arsenal wanted to sign Chelsea vice-captain Jorginho and Lyon star Houssem Aouar in the summer as well as Thomas Partey.

The Mirror claims Mikel Arteta was not content with targeting just Partey, who he landed on deadline day from Atletico Madrid after meeting his £45million release clause.
