New Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari must fight to convince midfielder Frank Lampard to remain at Stamford Bridge as Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho steps up his bid to link up with the player at the San Siro.

Scolari, who coached Portugal for the final time in their 3-2 Euro 2008 quarter-final defeat against Germany, will take up his new role in England on July 1, but there are fears Lampard could be set to join Inter.

Those fears were heightened when former Blues boss Mourinho revealed he is planning a raid on Chelsea for both Lampard and striker Didier Drogba.
