Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is the favourite to take over at Stamford Bridge next season, although former boss Carlo Ancelotti is also in the frame for the job, and Lampard is thought to be keen to link up with the Italian should he be given the job for a second time.
Lampard has already turned down approaches from MK Dons and Oxford United to become their manager in order to complete his coaching badge.
