Frank Lampard is in advanced talks with Crystal Palace to become their new manager.
This is according to transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano.
Romano also claimed that Slavia Praga’s Abdallah Sima could be one of Lampard’s first signings if he arrives at the South London club.
“Crystal Palace are still in contact with Frank Lampard and his agent as potential new manager – talks progressing.
“Abdallah Sima from Slavia Praga is among the options as new signings, also in case Lampard will be appointed,” he tweeted.
Lampard has been out of job since he sacked at Chelsea in January.
Roy Hodgson, who is the current Palace manager, has a deal which ends this summer.
The 73-year-old looks to leave Selhurst Park after six years.
