- Frank Lampard has been picked by Chelsea players as ideal replacement for Sarri
- Maurizio Sarri is expected to leave Chelsea for a likely move to Juventus this summer
- Last season, the Italian helped Chelsea finish among the top four and also won the Europa League title
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has reportedly been picked by the Blues' players as the man who should replace Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge this summer.
There have been reports that Chelsea chiefs want Maurizio Sarri to leave the club after just one season in which he won the Europa League title and also finished among the top four teams.
Sarri is also said to be wanted by Italian champions Juventus and he could make a return to Italy soon.
And according to the report by Bleacher, the name of Frank Lampard has been mentioned many times by Chelsea players in the dressing room.
But Chelsea directors are less sure about bringing the iconic former midfielder back to Stamford Bridge.
Lampard, 40, has just one season of experience in the dugout under his belt at championship club Derby County.
However, whoever takes up the reins at Chelsea should the club fire Sarri will have to work with a two-window transfer ban hanging over Blues.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how embattled Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is now said to be waiting for the Blues' board to decide this week on his future at Stamford Bridge.
Already, the Italian football tactician has been linked with a move to Juventus as the club want him to replace Allegri at Turin.
