Italian manager Allegri won five Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia trophies and led Juventus to two Champions League finals in his five-year stint in Turin.

He left Juve at the end of the 2018-19 campaign, however, and fellow Italian & Chelsea boss Sarri is the front-runner to take over.

Sarri has only spent a season at Stamford Bridge, leading the Blues to Europa League glory and a third-placed finish in the Premier League.

But the former Napoli boss has held talks with Juventus and is said to be keen to join the club this summer after a turbulent spell in west London.

If Sarri departs, Chelsea could look to the experienced Allegri to steady the ship and the Daily Star say he has told friends the job ‘appeals’ to him.

Another option for Roman Abramovich is Frank Lampard, the Chelsea legend who took Derby County to the Championship play-off final in his first season in management.

Asked about his future after Chelsea’s Europa League triumph, Sarri said: ‘I need to talk to the club and make sure I know what I can do for Chelsea and what Chelsea can do for me.

‘I love the Premier League and I’m lucky I’m at Chelsea but at the end of each season you have to sit down and talk.

‘In my opinion, I deserve to stay at Chelsea but my opinion is not enough. I have a contract [for another two years]. At the moment, we are talking about nothing.’

Lampard, meanwhile, played down the links with his former club following Derby’s defeat to Aston Villa at Wembley. ‘I’m not interested in speculation,’ he said. ‘I’ve got a two-year contract and I love working at this place. We’ll see what happens.’
