Ligue 2 side Monaco have rejected speculations that they have made a move on Chelsea star Frank Lampard.
Media reports in England earlier this week suggested that free-spending Monaco had contacted the player’s representatives with a view of making an official bid in the January transfer window.
However, French daily L’Equipe has learned that the rumours are unfounded.
“There is nothing concrete,” a source from the club told L’Equipe.
Having not been offered a new deal at Stamford Bridge, it is perfectly clear Lampard will be leaving Chelsea, and it only remains to be seen whether he will call it quits in January or at the end of the season.
The veteran midfielder is warming up to the idea of leaving European football altogether, with clubs from MLS, Australian A-League and Chinese Super League showing interest.
Frank Lampard will remained remembered for being one of the highest scoring midfielders in Premier League history, having bagged 152 goals in 528 league appearances.
