Caretaker Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will be hoping to pick up his first win since returning to the club when his side travel to face Arsenal on Tuesday.

The Blues are without a win in eight games across all competitions, and Lampard has seen his side lose all five games since he took charge of the club on an interim basis.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is expected to take charge of the club at the end of the season, with official confirmation expected in the coming days.

Now, it appears that the Argentine will prioritise a move for a former Liverpool star when he takes charge of the club.

As per Football Insider, Pochettino will push those in charge of the club to make a sensational move for Bayern Munich star Sadio Mane.

The report claims that the ex-Spurs boss will be confirmed as Chelsea’s new boss soon having verbally agreed to take over from Lampard.

Once he is appointed, the 51-year-old will look to sign Mane, who left Liverpool to join the German champions last summer.

Mane, 31, spent six successful years with The Reds after joining the club from Southampton in 2016.

In total, he made 269 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 120 goals and registering 48 assists across all competitions.

Since making the move to Germany, Mane has scored 12 goals in 35 games across all competitions, although his time in Bavaria appeared to turn sour last month when he was involved in a reported bust-up with teammate Leroy Sane following Bayern’s Champions League defeat against Manchester City.

The Senegal international was left out of the Bayern squad for their following match, but he has since returned to the squad and he provided an assist against Mainz last month.

Despite this, Bayern would reportedly be willing to allow Mane to leave this summer for a fee of around £30 million, and Pochettino is keen for those in charge of the club to make a move.
