According to The Telegraph via Daily Mail, Frank Lampard could be set for a Premier League return with Crystal Palace interested in the former Chelsea boss.
Lampard was sacked by Chelsea in January after a poor run of form saw Chelsea drop to 9th in the Premier League and in danger of missing out on a top four finish.
Roy Hodgson’s contract at Crystal Palace will expire this summer and Crystal Palace want Lampard to replace the 73 year old.
Should Lampard accept the Crystal Palace job, he will be backed in the transfer market with a £50million transfer budget.
Moreover, Lampard’s contacts at Chelsea could open the door to loan moves for Chelsea’s talented starlets, having nurtured the likes of Billy Gilmour during his time at Stamford Bridge, while Tammy Abraham’s future is up in the air.
Eddie Howe and Sean Dyche have also been linked with the Palace job, but Lampard is the favourite for the job.
