Chelsea told Lampard ‘will succeed Sarri’ and Agent of midfielder in England for Premier League talks

Simon Johnson has claimed Frank Lampard WILL succeed Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea once Derby County are happy with the compensation package offered by the Blues.

After months of speculation and rumours about the future of Maurizio Sarri, it was confirmed last week that the Italian would be leaving the club and heading back to Seri A with Italian giants Juventus.

Recent reports emerging from Sky in Italy have claimed the former Stamford Bridge midfielder is alleged to have agreed a contract until 2022 with the Blues, which he will sign when he officially leaves Derby.

Now Jordan has claimed the 41-year-old is simply waiting to sign on the dotted line at Chelsea.

“The situation is; Frank’s playing the waiting game,” Johnson said on the TalkSport website.

“He’s in situ basically waiting to get the go ahead to sign on.

“Everything I’ve been told is that he’s ready to go. I don’t cover Derby so they’re brief in their messages.

“But the way I am interpreting that is maybe they are fishing for the compensation for Frank Lampard.

“There is a £4million release clause in his contract, but Frank will certainly want to bring many of Derby’s backroom staff with him.

“So I get the impression that may be what is holding things up. Yes, Frank is on holiday in France but he is effectively waiting to just put pen to paper.”

Meanwhile, The agent of Bruno Fernandes has reportedly arrived in England to talk about a move to the Premier League.

We are keen to splash the cash and bring in another creative midfielder, especially now that star man Eden Hazard has decided to leave the club after months of speculation.

And one name which has been linked with a possible move to Stamford Bridge over the past few weeks is that of Fernandes, with the Sporting Lisbon midfielder impressing this season and helping his side with 50 goals this season, either created or scored.

Now Portuguese newspaper A Bola have claimed the agent of Fernandes is in London to discuss his client’s future, with reports a £85 million fee will ultimately get a transfer deal done.
