Chelsea will reportedly unveil former midfielder Frank Lampard as their new manager within the next 48 hours. Lampard is the leading contender to replace Maurizio Sarri in the Stamford Bridge hot-seat after the Italian departed for Juventus.
The former England midfielder is understood to have told his current club Derby County he wants to join Chelsea and now reports claim the two clubs are close to agreeing a compensation package.
The Rams are demanding in the region of £4million for their boss, who guided the club to the Championship play-off final last season. Chelsea are close to coming to an agreement with Derby and an announcement is expected within the next two days.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
