Frank Lampard ‘in talks’ with Norwich with Chelsea legend on three-man shortlist

Frank Lampard is reportedly 'in talks' with Norwich City about becoming their new manager after Daniel Farke was sacked shortly after their 2-1 win over Brentford on Saturday.

Despite leading Norwich to their first win of the season, Farke was given his marching orders and now talks are underway with the Chelsea legend who eyes a return to the dugout.

Norwich are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League with just five points, and they have conceded 21 goals in their opening 11 games back in England's top-flight.

Farke's successor faces a tough task, and Lampard is believed to be one of three men on the managerial shortlist at Carrow Road.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Lampard held conversations with the Norwich board on Monday about a potential deal, but nothing has been agreed yet as both parties assess their options.

If talks with Lampard stall, Norwich will also turn to newly available Dean Smith and Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl, who according to Sky Sports are the other names on their three-man shortlist.

Is Frank Lampard the right man for the Norwich job? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Lampard landed the dream job at Chelsea in 2019 after impressing in his first role at Derby County, but the position perhaps came too soon for the former Blues midfielder, who was sacked in January.

The Chelsea legend remains a priority for Norwich though despite a lack of experience, and with an intentional break pausing domestic duties until November 20, The Canaries have some time to make a decision.
