Frank Lampard a target for Inter Milan and Lazio
Chelsea midfielder is free to talk to foreign clubs this month
Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has been linked with a move to Italy as his contract nears expiration.
The England international has just six months to run on his current deal and is free to talk to foreign clubs about his future.
The 34-year-old recently revealed there have been no talks over extending his current deal at Stamford Bridge, despite impressive performances in recent games, including a brace against Everton.
It would now appear there is interest coming from Italy, with Corriere dello Sport claiming both Inter Milan and Lazio are interested in signing the midfielder.
The player himself appears relaxed about his future.
"I just hope personally for me, it means I will be playing in a winning team," Lampard said after Sunday's 2-1 victory at Goodison Park.
"I will keep trying to give my best as I've always done when here and will continue to do so.
"I know there’s a lot of speculation and talk, but for me the enjoyable bit is the 90 minutes like I’ve just played, there."
Lampard has also been linked with a move to Chelsea's west London rivals QPR, which would see him link up with his uncle, Harry Redknapp.
A move to the MLS at the end of the season has also been rumoured.
