English side, Chelsea reportedly want former midfielder, Frank Lampard, to become the coach when Antonio Conte leaves Stamford Bridge.
Conte is widely expected to depart at the end of this season, after the Blues failed to replicate the form they showed in their title-winning campaign last season.
Chelsea sit fifth on the table, two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham who occupy the last Champions League spot.
According to The Sun, the club’s hierarchy want Conte’s replacement to include Lampard in his backroom staff.
Lampard has spent the last 18 months studying for his UEFA ‘A’ coaching license, with a view to making the transition from the pitch to the dugout.
The 39-year-old has also worked with former teammate and Chelsea Under-18s boss Jody Morris at Cobham recently.
