Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has insisted that he wants to become the Ryan Giggs of Stamford Bridge as he eyes a contract extension at the club.
The England midfielder is widely expected to leave the club in the summer as it is believed that the club do not want to extend his current contract, which runs out at the end of the current campaign.
Lampard was in sensational form during the club's 2-1 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday and he was rewarded with two goals which saw him break the club's goalscoring record.
The midfield-man took his tally to 203 for the club, which has seen him surpass Bobby Tambling's tally of 202.
Despite being in impressive form for the club, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich still has no interest in renewing Lampard's contract, but the player himself is keen on extending his stay at Stamford Bridge.
"I'd love to carry on as long as I feel I can do and I feel I'm fit," said Lampard, who joined the Blues from West Ham in 2001. "I'd love to do that, for another three or four years. I'd love to emulate those boys.
"Ryan Giggs (has) got an aura around him. All the players at the club look up to him. He's the mark"
Lampard continued: "The easiest part about this season has been playing games, in terms of the speculation.
"When you are thinking about it too much at home it becomes more detrimental, but when you're playing and training and want to do well for the team then it's easier."
