AS Monaco are chasing Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.

The Mirror says Lampard has also been linked with LA Galaxy but a move to France would have more ­appeal and it would enable to Lampard to link up with boss Claudio ­Ranieri who signed him from West Ham in 2001 for ­£11million at the Blues.

The Chelsea star, 34, is out of contract next month and has yet to sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge.
