Chelsea FC have started discussions with Frank Lampard about replacing Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Europa League winners have already held talks with the Derby County manager about a return to Stamford Bridge.

The same article states that Italian head coach Maurizio Sarri is on the brink of a return to Serie A with champions Juventus.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC are concerned about Lampard’s lack of experience following his one year in charge of Derby.

The former England international led the Rams to the Championship play-off final before a 2-1 loss to Aston Villa at Wembley last month.

The Daily Mail report goes on to add that ex-Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag are also contenders to replace Sarri.

Chelsea FC are currently appealing a transfer ban with the Court of Arbitration for Sport after Fifa blocked the west London side from signing players for two transfer windows.

The Blues finished in third place in the Premier League table last season to secure a return to the Champions League in Sarri’s debut campaign at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea FC won the Europa League thanks to a 4-1 victory over Arsenal in the Baku final.
