The Englishman will be leaving Stamford Bridge after 13 years.
Frank Lampard announced on Monday that he would be leaving Chelsea this summer when his current contract at Stamford Bridge expires.
It will bring to an end a brilliant 13 years in west London for the England international, who won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Europa League and Champions League during that time.
To many Lampard is the club’s greatest ever player and is also their all-time top-scorer and replacing the 35-year-old will be no easy task for manager Jose Mourinho.
So here are five options for the 51-year-old to fill the gap left by the Englishman in midfield.
Cesc Fabregas, Barcelona
Despite not really being named in the list of potential clubs for the unsettled Spaniard in recent times, suddenly a move for Fabregas would seem the ideal option for the Blues.
Barca are keen to sell the 27-year-old, who has failed to truly establish himself at the Nou Camp following a £35m switch from Arsenal in 2011.
The Spain international spent eight years previously in the Premier League with the Gunners and enjoyed English football and is thought to be available for around £30m.
