Frank Lampard is set for a quick return to football as Arsenal look to make the former Chelsea man their next manager.
Lampard will take over from Arsenal Women’s manager Joe Montemurro, after the Australian announced he will leave the WSL club in the summer.
The 42-year-old Englishman was sacked in January following a poor string of results.
Despite the club facing a transfer ban, Lampard secured a top 4 finish in 2019/20.
Lampard was given over £200m to spend last summer and results disappointed.
He was replaced by German Thomas Tuchel with the club 9th in the league.
Under Tuchel, Chelsea’s fortunes have turned around and they currently sit in the top 4 and qualified for the quarter finals of the Champions League.
Arsenal, Montemurro led Arsenal to their first league title in 7 years.
The 51-year-old announced he will leave Arsenal to spend more time with his family.
