Chelsea legend John Terry believes there is no-one better equipped than Frank Lampard to become the next head coach of the Blues. The 40-year-old has been hugely fancied to become the next Blues boss and talks are currently at an advanced stage with Derby County regarding the compensation package.
The former Blues midfielder has been touted to take over the head coach role at Stamford Bridge over the past two weeks, but the club have not managed to find the breakthrough with the Rams over the release of the 40-year-old. Nonetheless, reports claim that the same remains a formality with Lampard determined to take up the challenge with the west London giants.
Chelsea are currently not permitted to register any players for the next 12 months, but they have a wide range of reserve players, who could come of importance next term. Tammy Abraham, Michy Batshuayi and Mason Mount are among those tipped to make a mark under Lampard and it remains to be seen whether the manager can get the best out of those players. The Blues have a tough beginning to the new Premier League season with an away trip to Manchester United.
