Previous Paris St Germain boss Thomas Tuchel is the favourite to exchange Lampard, the experiences claimed.
Lampard, who led Chelsea to a top-4 finish and the FA Cup closing in his debut 2019-20 campaign in demand, has not bought the very best out of his squad this period inspite of the club investing much more than 220 million pounds ($300.94 million) on new recruits.
