Chelsea forward Pedro has admitted he has offers from clubs to leave amid a ‘difficult time’ for him at the club.

The Spaniard has found himself out of favour under Frank Lampard this season, making just nine appearances in all competitions so far.

Only four have those have been in the Premier League, and he hasn’t finished a game since the 1-1 draw with Leicester City in August.

Lampard has instead preferred to focus on Chelsea’s young guns, which has resulted in a drastic change in circumstance for the likes of Pedro, who was a regular under Maurizio Sarri last season.

There have been suggestions that Chelsea will be open to moving him on in the January transfer window, particularly as his contract comes to an end next summer.

And he has now confirmed that he has offers from other clubs should he wish to move, although he insists he is calm about the situation.

“Yes there are offers, there are always clubs that are interested, and that is a joy,” he told Radio Club Tenerife, relayed by El Dorsal.

“I am calm because in the club they have always treated me in the best way; also the same with the fans and teammates.

“You have to keep working to take advantage when you have opportunities. Yes, it is a difficult time.

“For us, it has been a transition season because Chelsea has not been able to sign and has opted for young people, but at the level.

“Frank Lampard is betting on them, and perhaps it is the reason that I’ve had fewer opportunities despite starting well.

“I still have years to play, but you’re thinking about what things are going on. I’m running out of contract at Chelsea, I’m free, and we’ll see what happens.”
