"And I know what I want, in terms of not a specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job, I know what I want".

Sarri has been heavily linked with a move to Italian giants Juventus, which would leave Chelsea managerless and in the midst of a two-window transfer ban imposed upon them by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Sarri on his way out of Stamford Bridge?

A few weeks ago, it was reported that Moraes prefers a move to the Premier League and that he is excited for the opportunity to work with Rafa Benitez. Having won titles with Valencia, Liverpool, Napoli, and in his previous interim spell with Chelsea as well, he isn't the worst managerial option out there. The problem, though, as we all know, is that Benitez is yet to sign a contract extension with Newcastle United and his current contract expires on June 30th.

The problem, however, are his previous comments on the Blues during his time with Liverpool.

The Chelsea manager continues to be linked with a return to Serie A following his turbulent first season in England.

"It's the passion of the fans that helps to win matches - not flags".

Rio Ferdinand, who played with Chelsea legend Lampard at West Ham and for England, believes the Derby boss is the right man for the job.

The Daily Mail report goes on to add that ex-Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag are also contenders to replace Sarri. "Or are you going to go with someone who the fans are going to love to have back?" Some have even claimed they will give up their season ticket in case Benitez is hired.

Lampard's success at Derby was achieved with a team of young players on loan from Premier League clubs.

A bigger section of the Blues supporters are said to welcome the prospect of Lampard taking over at the helm and it remains to be seen whether the hierarchy think the same way with the 40-year-old bound to bring a feel-good factor with his presence.
