Chelsea snub Lukaku bid but may let Lampard go for free – reports

Danish club FC Copenhagen have had an offer to take striker Romelu Lukaku on loan rejected by Chelsea, according to The People.

The same newspaper also reports that Chelsea have refused to let defender Gary Cahill play for Britain at this summer’s Olympics, while Daniel Sturridge has been given permission.

Boss Roberto Di Matteo and the club’s top brass are said to have insisted that Cahill, who missed Euro 2012 because of a broken jaw, must complete a full pre-season with them.

The Mail on Sunday say LA Galaxy are ready to make a fresh move to prise Frank Lampard away from Chelsea.

The People claim Lampard has been offered a two-year deal worth £13m by the MLS outfit, is seriously considering the move and may even be allowed to leave on a free transfer to save the £9m he will apparently be paid in the final year of his Blues contract.

Lampard, 34, has repeatedly dismissed speculation about his future and insisted he intends to stay at Stamford Bridge.

The People also say QPR will ask Tottenham if they can take David Bentley on loan, and that Fulham are in talks to sign Czech Republic midfielder Tomas Sivok, who is a free agent after leaving Turkish club Besiktas.
