Chelsea identify potential replacements for Frank Lampard
Chelsea have identified four managers, who could take charge at Stamford Bridge, should Frank Lampard get sacked in the near future.
The Blues were regarded as potential title contenders in November, but their form has been poor over the past few weeks.
The club recently suffered a fourth defeat from six matches and that has led to question marks over Lampard's future as the club's head coach.
According to The Independent, the west London outfit have identified four candidates, who could take control, if Lampard is relieved from his duties.
Massimiliano Allegri and Thomas Tuchel are two names on their shortlist. Both are out-of-work at the moment. Tuchel was recently sacked by Paris Saint-Germain.
Elsewhere, they have an eye on Brendan Rodgers, who has aided the Foxes' progress into a top-six team while Ralph Hasenhuttl is another head coach on their radar.
Hasenhuttl has helped Southampton excel in the Premier League this term and they are currently sixth with 29 points. The Saints recently registered a stunning 1-0 win over Liverpool.
