Derby County are expecting an approach from Chelsea to speak with Frank Lampard following Maurizio Sarri’s departure for Juventus.

The manager’s exit after one season at Stamford Bridge should be confirmed in the next 24 hours after agreement was reached with the Serie A champions over compensation to buy out the remaining 12 months of his £5m-a-year contract.

An upturn in results, which culminated in a third-place finish and success in the Europa League, left Chelsea reluctant to dismiss Sarri, only for him to make clear his desire to return to Italy, citing family reasons.

Chelsea had resisted Juve’s attempts to secure the Italian for nothing and could end up raising in excess of that amount, depending on what Sarri achieves in Turin.

The former England midfielder – who won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, a Champions League and Europa League over a 13-year career at Chelsea – is 12 months into a three-season contract and could be prised away for around £4m.

Juve are expected to confirm his arrival on a three-year deal.

It remains to be seen how Lampard will react to Chelsea’s approach given he will be wary of the relative restrictions under which he would have to work given the transfer ban.
