Spanner in the works? Derby desperate to stop Frank Lampard joining Chelsea

Derby will offer Frank Lampard a new £10m contract in a bid to ward off interest from Chelsea, according to The Daily Star.

The Blues are on the lookout for a new manager after Maurizio Sarri left for Juventus earlier this week.

Lampard is the favourite to replace the Italian, who guided Chelsea to a third-place finish and Europa League triumph last term.

However, Derby are determined to keep hold of a manager who led them to the Championship play-off final in 2018/19.

And the second-tier club are prepared to offer Lampard a lucrative new deal to try and keep him at Pride Park.

Derby will receive £4m in compensation if Chelsea do decide to appoint their all-time record goalscorer as manager.
