Chelsea are set to meet with Frank Lampard to discuss the manager’s role at Stamford Bridge as Juventus prepare to announce the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as their new coach, Goal can confirm.

Derby County head coach Lampard has long been considered a front-runner to replace Sarri and, despite the Europa League winners having assessed several options during a search led by director Marina Granovskaia on behalf of owner Roman Abramovich, their legendary midfielder continues to be a leading candidate.

The Blues will not stand in Sarri’s way of returning to Serie A , with the Italian keen to move to Turin after beating Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League final last month in what is likely to be his final match in charge.

Sarri is in line for a salary increase from €5.6 million per year to around €7m per season when he joins Juventus, while Chelsea are requesting £5m to buy out their manager from his contract.

Both Chelsea and Juventus are hoping to make the announcements by the end of the week.

Ajax’s Erik ten Hag has also been considered for a role but he is cautious about signing on at Stamford Bridge due to the transfer ban that is currently in place.

Massimiliano Allegri, who is being replaced by Sarri at Juventus and is currently out of work, holds similar concerns to Ten Hag regarding Chelsea, and has also told those close to him that he is ready to take up to a year out of management.

Current Newcastle United manager and former Blues caretaker boss Rafael Benitez has been linked with a shock return to Stamford Bridge by reports in Italy, but he is not a realistic candidate. (Goal)
