Chelsea fans respond to interest in Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook

Chelsea are reportedly interested in Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are not pleased with the speculation.

The Daily Mail reports that Frank Lampard’s team are eyeing the 22-year-old and Liverpool are also keen on him.

It is understood that both the Blues and Liverpool have identified him as a target, but want him to prove his fitness and form this season.

Cook is a highly-rated central midfielder that has earned one senior cap for England and played an important role at international level for various age groups.

He is a pass master that keeps his team ticking over in the centre of the park and has great energy.

But the Bournemouth ace has spent the majority of 2019 on the sidelines with a knee injury and has only just made his comeback in the last month.

A selection of Blues supporters on social media have responded to reported interest in the midfielder negatively and aren’t sure he’s cut out to make it at Stamford Bridge.

He’s certainly got the potential to be a regular senior England international in future, but it does depend on how he recovers from his injury problem and if he can fulfil his potential.

He’s an intriguing prospect to keep an eye on in the Premier League during the next few months, but the only issue is there is already a plethora of midfield talents in West London.

Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and even promising Scottish talent Billy Gilmour are all options for Lampard in the midfield area.
