His assistant Jody Morris is being considered for a reunion with his former club, while Chris Jones is also set to return, having been with the Blues during the Antonio Conte regime.

Derby's Head of Performance Analysis Steve Rands has also been mentioned as someone who Lampard would like to join him at Chelsea after he originally left Manchester City to move to the Rams with the former England midfielder.

Chelsea's Development Squad manager Joe Edwards is set to be promoted in line with Lampard's arrival, with the highly-rated young coach boasting a close relationship with Morris from his time in the academy.

Goal again believe that Claude Makelele is still in talks to return to a prominent role in the loan set-up at Chelsea after leaving his managerial position at KAS Eupen, despite having been considered a success by the Belgian club.

Chelsea have already announced Petr Cech's return in a technical and performance advisor role where he will link up with both the academy and first team.

Michael Ballack is another former Blues player who has been linked with a return by the media in Germany as he is currently studying for his UEFA B Licence with the Football Association of Wales (FAW).
