Chelsea speculation

According to The Express, Chelsea want to appoint Derby boss Lampard as their new manager.

It has been reported that Italian and European giants Juventus want to appoint Chelsea boss Sarri as their new head coach, and that the Blues have identified the former England international midfielder as his potential replacement.

According to The Express, Derby - who failed to win promotion to the Premier League after losing the Championship playoff final to Aston Villa last month - will want £4 million as compensation.

Lampard was appointed the manager of the Rams only in the summer of 2018, and it did come as a surprise that the Englishman could guide the team to the Championship playoff final.
