The Blues are in the market in search for another new boss after allowing Sarri to join Juventus for a compensation fee this summer.

Club owner, Roman Abramovich, is now understood to have taken up the responsibility of finding the Italian's successor and has since held talks with Lampard over the role.

Abramovich reportedly promised Lampard that he will be given at least two seasons at Chelsea to steady the ship amid a looming two-window transfer ban.

The former England international made his managerial debut with Derby County last season and has thus far enjoyed a successful spell with them.

He nearly steered the Championship side to Premier League promotion before missing out on the final slot to Aston Villa after a 2-1 defeat in the playoff finals played at Wembley Stadium.
