Frank Lampard is a contender to take over at Wolves, according to TalkSPORT.

They report that talks have taken place with the former Chelsea and Derby manager.

Bruno Lage is also in the frame, but it is not a done deal that the former Benfica manager will be the new man in charge at Molineux.

Lampard has been out of work since being sacked by Chelsea in January, when they were ninth in the Premier League.

The previous season, Lampard guided Chelsea into the top four, and Nuno said he was doing a ‘fantastic’ job back in July.

Question marks still remain over Lampard’s ability as a manager and he is still a relative rookie in managerial terms.

 

His Derby side were beaten by Aston Villa in the 2019 Championship play-off final.

After that one season, he was brought in at Chelsea and having navigated the transfer ban relatively well, struggled to make them a cohesive team in his second campaign.

He does have experience and contacts in English football, which is something Lage doesn’t.

It remains to be seen whether Wolves will part with the Portuguese-centric model which has been central to the success in recent years.

Lampard will be keen to show what he can do in the top flight having been jettisoned by the club at which he’s the record goalscorer and watched as Thomas Tuchel took them to the Champions League final.
