Lampard Link to Chelsea : One Player Who Stands to Benefit If Club Legend Replaces SarriMaurizio Sarri faces a bleak future at Stamford Bridge as reports claimed that he could be replaced by Derby County manager Frank Lampard this summer.

Despite leading the Blues to their first Europa League final since the 2012-13 season, the former Napoli manager isn't guaranteed of his place in the team due to his underwhelming performance in the League this season. 

According to the Daily Mail
, the Derby County manager is heavily linked with a return to Stamford Bridge following his awesome achievements with the Championship side, and one player will be looking forward to having the former England international as  manager considering the relationship existing between them.

This player is no other person than 21-year-old defender, Fikayo Tomori, who spent the whole of this season under Lampard's watch.

The recently completed season was arguably Tomori's best season since he turned professional, thanks to Lampard's trust in his ability.

Having won Lampard's trust during his loan spell with the Rams, Tomori will definitely be in Chelsea first-team squad, should Lampard eventually succeeded Sarri before next season.

Tomori's chances of being one of Chelsea regular starters remains uncertain as long as Sarri is at the helm of affairs.

This is why the youngster can't wait to have Lampard as his new manager in the summer.

However, the Blues board of directors will wait for the outcome of the forthcoming Europa League final against Arsenal before making any decision as regards to Sarri's future.

A win against the Gunners could force the West London club into giving Sarri another chance to impress next season, while a defeat could mean the end of Sarri's reign at Stamford Bridge.
