Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is set to become the next Chelsea manager, as the club are keen to replace Maurizio Sarri with the club legend.
Chelsea have been hit with a transfer ban for two transfer windows, and the Chelsea job will be a bit dicey for the next Blues boss.
According to reports, Lampard is concerned about the task facing him at Stamford Bridge and wishes not to tarnish his reputation with supporters. Lampard wants assurances from the club that he will be given time to implement his strategies especially as he’d be without Eden Hazard next season and won’t be able to make signings.
According to reports, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is said to be impressed with the job Lampard did at Derby County last season and has promised he’d be given time at Stamford Bridge, and that his job will be safe no matter what happens in his first season at the club.
Chelsea are set to hand Lampard a three-year deal and Derby County have given the Blues permission to speak with the 41-year-old.
Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham has spent the last three years out on loan, and the 21-year-old believes there’s no better person to manage Chelsea next season than Lampard.
“Yes, if it was him to take over the job, I believe in myself,” Abraham told The Telegraph.
“There is no better guy [than Lampard] to play under. Someone you have grown up watching, been at Chelsea forever.
“He knows about me as well. I played against his team in the play-off final.”
