Former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko is now a favorite to replace the underfire Frank Lampard should the club decide to fire the 42-year Englishman.
Lampard has come under sharp scrutiny over the last few days with the club's comprehensive 2-0 at the hands of Leicester City on Tuesday now piling more pressure on the club's legend.
With only 9 wins over the last 17 matches in all competitions, the axe could be about to fall on Lampard with the club's title hopes going up in smokes.
According to the Metro, Lampard could be on his way out of the club with Shevchenko earmarked to replace him.
The former Ukraine international joined the club in 2006 on the then club record but failed to make an impact as he only scored 22 goals in 77 appearances in all competitions.
The former striker who has now transitioned into coaching is now in-charge of the Ukraine national team.
Though he has no experience in club management, it is widely expected that Chelsea owner Roman Abromovich is set to bring in the Ukrainian to salvage the club's season.
After the latest defeat that took the Foxes to the Premier League summit, Lampard admitted that the Chelsea job could be out of his hands and it is expected that it is only a matter of days before Abromovich finally acts.
