Gimenez could be a superb signing to help Chelsea strengthen at the back after a difficult season, with the Uruguay international surely a significant upgrade on under-performing centre-backs like Andreas Christensen and Kurt Zouma.
On Lampard, he said: “I would have liked to play with Lampard. I always used to watch Chelsea as a kid, loved them.”
