However, Max Allegri, who might be succeeded by Sarri in Turin, was the early choice to coach at the Stamford Bridge.

The 51-year-old is likely to undertake a sabbatical forcing Chelsea to pursue alternative options to replace him.

Also, Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez, Ajax’s Erik ten Hag, Watford’s Javi Gracia have been linked with the Stamford Bridge job, but Lampard is believed to top the list of coaches.
