There are suggestions that former player and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard could be the next manager at the Stamford Bridge.
This is after it has been claimed that the Blues management have agreed on a deal with Juventus to have Italian boss Maurizio Sarri join the Serie A champions.
Maurizio Sarri was employed as Chelsea boss in the last summer transfer window but his stay at the club has not been palatable for him despite winning the Europa League title and securing qualification to the Champions League by finishing third on the league table.
Now that he is reported to have agreed on a deal with Juventus, while the Italian outfit have also agreed to pay £5 million for the former Napoli boss, there is a need to bring in someone new.
It is now looking clear that Derby County boss Frank Lampard will emerge as he is the number one target of the club.
He has got history with the club as well as a good knowledge of the culture at the Stamford Bridge. That has been seen as an asset that will help him on the job.
Frank Lampard has gained needed experience with Championship outfit Derby County but he would face a bigger challenge as soon as the mantle is handed over to him.
