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.

Speaking to Goal.com, Terry said that Lampard has proved himself during his debut season in management with the Rams and he is perfect for the Blues with the transfer ban in place, he told: “After the season he has had with Derby and with Chelsea’s transfer ban in place, there is no-one better equipped than Frank to succeed at Chelsea. It is perfect timing for him and the club. Frank was under pressure to succeed at Chelsea the day he arrived from West Ham and he never hid from that. He revelled in it and went on to become Chelsea’s greatest-ever player. He is just as exacting on himself now as a manager.”

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.
