New Everton manager, Frank Lampard could be about to hit at former club Chelsea this season by taking along with him a key member of Thomas Tuchel’s backroom staff.
The 43-year-old is set to return to the Premier League after he was offered the Everton manager’s job on Friday, having impressed during a second interview earlier this week.
Lampard has been out of work since he was sacked by Chelsea just over 12 months ago but has been desperate to land a top flight job having been in the running to take over at Crystal Palace, Norwich and Newcastle.
According to The Athletic, Lampard wants to bring Anthony Barry with him to Goodison Park, although Tuchel is prepared to fight and attempt to keep the highly-rated coach at Chelsea.
Lampard could also target Gareth Southgate’s No.2, Steve Holland, but there are currently no plans to reunite with Jody Morris, who Lampard worked with at both Derby County and Chelsea.
The Toffees began the process of looking for Rafa Benitez’s successor a fortnight ago and have lurched from one candidate to another, before finally settling on the Chelsea legend.
