Brighton plan move for Chelsea star Frank Lampard

Brighton & Hove Albion will launch an ambitious move to sign Frank Lampard should they win promotion to the Premier League, reports the Daily Star.

The £125,000-a-week star is approaching the final few months of his contract and a potential renewal is yet to come under agenda at Stamford Bridge.

Much like last season, Lampard's future at Chelsea is very much in doubt and the prospect of one final contract before he retires is starting to rear its head.

Jose Mourinho was keen to get Lampard tied down to a new deal as part of his return to Stamford Bridge but is now considering the options of his squad as he looks to streamline it ahead of a summer recruitment drive.

Unsurprisingly, a big money move to the MLS is back on the cards with LA Galaxy still keen to take him Stateside after failing to tempt him last season. However, as he is set to wed his TV presenter girlfriend Christine Bleakley in the summer, the prospect of a new life in California could have positive implications for both of them.

One surprising alternative for the 36-year-old Chelsea legend could be Brighton, who are planning to offer him a two-year deal should they win promotion to the top flight.

Currently eighth in the Championship, the Seagull's only hope for promotion will be via the play-offs but they must still vault the likes of Reading to earn their place in the end-of-season scramble.

If Lampard wants to continue his England career next season he will need to stay in the Premier League but he could also decide to call it a day after this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
