Frank Lampard is one of six potential candidates being lined up to replace Antonio Conte at Chelsea FC, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that Lampard is a surprise contender to take over the reins from Conte at the end of the season.

The defending Premier League champions lost 3-1 to bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening to heap further pressure on the Italian head coach.

The same article goes on to state that Lampard is on a shortlist of managers who could be appointed as Conte’s successor following a disappointing 2017-18 season.

However, the story lists three potential stumbling blocks that would have to be overcome to result in Lampard’s emotional appointment at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard is still working on his coaching badges following his retirement 14 months ago following a brief stint at New York City FC.

The Blues board are thought to be concerned about the 39-year-old’s lack of experience in management.

The Daily Mirror suggest that Lampard could be reluctant to take on the job at this stage of his coaching career.

Conte led Chelsea FC to the Premier League title with two games to spare last term.
