Claim From Italy: Chelsea Reach Agreement With Frank Lampard

Jody Morris is set to join Frank Lampard at Chelsea

Derby County want Frank Lampard's future sorted out this week with the club still braced for an official approach from Chelsea.

Despite missing out on promotion to the Premier League, Lampard has been tipped as the ideal replacement for Sarri, who joined Juventus last week.

The England U21 global will return to Chelsea this summer following a prolific loan spell at Aston Villa, the 21-year-old scoring 26 goals to help fire the Midlands side to promotion to the Premier League.

This has forced the club to assess their managerial options - with Frank Lampard sitting on the driver seat for the vacant role at Stamford Bridge.

Even though Lampard lacks the same experience and accolades as a manager as compared to others such as Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho who are now available, his vision and charisma could make up for that. I'm excited. I'm sure the rest of the (young Chelsea) players are. He knows about me as well - I played against his team in the play-off final.

But Lampard could not resist the opportunity to lead the club he has such an affinity for.

Madrid, meanwhile, are keen to raise funds having spent in the region of €300 million (£270m/$340m) on five players already this summer, including €100m on Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard.

"Fingers crossed, if it all goes well it changes the mind-set at the club". The Blues have a reputation of loaning out youngsters, but they will stay at the club for a season - majorly down to the transfer ban. He had an important season at Derby, so we'll see what happens'.
