Chelsea legends Frank Lampard and John Terry are both reportedly under consideration for the Ipswich's manager job.

According to Football Insider, the Tractor Boys have already approached Lampard in a bid to find out if the position is one that appeals to him.

The 43-year-old has been out of work since being sacked by European champions Chelsea earlier this year.

It was recently thought that he was in the running to take over at Ipswich's major rivals Norwich City, but he is said to have withdrawn from that process and the role subsequently went to Dean Smith.

Lampard, who was capped on more than 100 occasions by England during his playing days, started his managerial career with Championship outfit Derby County in 2018.

He guided the Rams to the play-off final, only to lose to Aston Villa before taking on the job at Chelsea.

Terry, meanwhile, is said to harbour an interest in beginning life in the dugout as a manager at Ipswich.

The 41-year-old spent three years on the coaching staff at Villa before stepping down in the summer to pursue a career as a number one.

Meanwhile, a report in Scotland has suggested that former Celtic boss Neil Lennon is also in the running to take charge of Ipswich, who were defeated 2-0 at Charlton Athletic last night.
