Chelsea are set to sack Frank Lampard and appoint Thomas Tuchel as his successor, sources have told ESPN.

They are expected to make an announcement later on Monday after informing the players by text message not to come to the club’s training base at Cobham for their planned morning session while a formal statement was prepared.

Chelsea are finalising contract talks with Tuchel, who is currently out of work after parting company with Paris Saint-Germain, with the German expected to sign a deal in the coming hours.

The move comes after Chelsea beat Luton Town 3-1 in Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round clash at Stamford Bridge but following a serious downturn in Premier League form, losing five of their past seven games.
