Former Chelsea defensive midfielder lined up as Antonio Conte replacement

Former Chelsea defensive midfielder lined up as Antonio Conte replacement

Lampard has already spent time with Chelsea's youth teams this season, while Terry returned to the club's Cobham training base this week where he met up with his former teammates and Antonio Conte.

The 27-year-old has been Chelsea FC's best player in an otherwise hard season season for Conte at Stamford Bridge.

After suffering an bad start to his reign in England, the Italian emerged as one of the favourites to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked in the 2016/2017 season.

Marcos Alonso has scored a stunning six goals in Premier League action for the Blues this season, but his goals haven't been enough to stop their decline under Coach Antonio Conte, and the Pensioners now find themselves a whole five points short of Champions League qualification.

A Stamford Bridge insider told the Sun: "Roman is not so trigger happy these days when it comes to firing managers". The charismatic Brazilian was frustrated with this move and failed to maintain his position in the side.

The stock of First American Financial Corporation (NYSE:FAF) earned "Overweight" rating by Barclays Capital on Friday, February 9. It turned negative, as 48 investors sold KO shares while 641 reduced holdings. 94 funds opened positions while 456 raised stakes.

However, their report claims that it will only happen if he stops complaining to the club's board about their transfer activity (or lack of).

According to the Daily Mail's Kieran Gill, former Blues player Jokanovic is one of several coaches under consideration by Chelsea having impressed them with his work, thanks to his attacking approach and commanding presence in the dressing room.

"I think, for John, Chelsea is his home", he said.

Conte also had this to say in his pre-match press conference: "He can come when he wants". That is very clear.
