Italian giants Juventus are reportedly plotting a January move for veteran Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.
Lampard is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season and Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez has already indicated the England international will not be offered a new deal.
It is thought the midfielder is keen to finish the current campaign in the Premier League, but Lampard could be convinced to make the move to Serie A.
Lampard is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in January, with MLS pair LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls both keen on the 34-year-old.
However, according to the Corriere Dello Sport Juventus are the frontrunners in the battle for Lampard's signature and hope to sign the midfielder in a cut-price deal in the January transfer window.
