Lampard given attractive Fiorentina offer

Frank Lampard has been told by Italian side Fiorentina that they would love to sign him for next season.

As Lampard's future at Chelsea seems to change every day, he has received plenty of attractive options and interest from across Europe.

The likes of LA Galaxy, Monaco and Juventus have all shown interest, whilst Man Utd are keen to approach the England international, if negotiations with Chelsea do not happen.

Lampard did turn down an attractive offer from a number of Asian clubs before Christmas but with Chelsea yet offer him a new deal, he may start seriously thinking about his future.

Blues owner Roman Abramovich is strangely unsure over a new deal for the ageing midfielder and it is believed that Lampard is deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge with the club keen to create a youthful long term side.

Fiorentina coach Vicenzo Montella has joined those clubs keeping a watchful eye on Lampard and told media on Saturday morning that he would love to sign him.

"Lampard to Fiorentina?" Montella said.

"I'd like to coach him. It's a pride that he appreciates Florence and Fiorentina.

"It would be nice, but he would also accept being on the bench.

"When I was in London I saw how he trained. He is a great professional and is physically intact."

Fiorentina are enjoying a good season in the Serie A and sit in the Champions League places at present with plenty of options for Lampard to explore, it remains anybody's guess where he will end up next season.

Where do you think super Frank will play next season?
