Leicester boss Rodgers keen to hear from Chelsea

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is being linked with Frank Lampard's job at Chelsea.

The Mirror says Chelsea could turn to Rodgers if the axe falls on Frank Lampard.

The Stamford Bridge hierarchy are impressed with their former Academy head coach's work at title-chasing Leicester.

Rodgers would be tempted by the Chelsea job but wouldn't consider moving until the summer.

Owner Roman Abramovich is a big admirer of Lampard and is desperate for him to succeed.

But a recent run of five Premier League defeats in eight games including a 2-0 reverse against Leicester has made him vulnerable to Abramovich's willingness to make changes when the heat is on.
