Frank Lampard's future at Stamford Bridge could be put into jeopardy with the news that Chelsea are lining-up a swoop for Brazilian midfielder Diego.

Last season's Player of the Year in the Bundesliga, Diego would cost around £25 million from Werder Bremen.


Diego is currently under contract with the German club until 2011, but Werder Bremen will be hard-pressed to turn down such an offer if Chelsea pursued their target.

According to the Sun newspaper, a Chelsea source said: "Frank's one of our most loyal players yet, unbelievably, there is still no sign of a new contract, even though we all know he can go on a Bosman soon as he has one year left on his present deal.

"Now there's a real fear the club are ready to lose him and bring in a Brazilian who has no experience of the English game."

Diego was believed to have been watched by scouts acting for Europe's top clubs at Ibrox last week where Werder Bremen lost to Rangers in the Uefa Cup.

The Chelsea source added: "There is a lot of talk going on around the club about Diego.

"There is loads of interest across Europe but Chelsea are the most likely to come up with the money."

Meanwhile, Lampard and Didier Drogba, who both missed Saturday's FA Cup defeat against Barnsley, could return to the starting line-up against Derby tonight, while Petr Cech may also be ready for a recall after missing the trip with a sprained ankle.

Derby manager Paul Jewell will once again be without injured quartet Giles Barnes, Dean Leacock, Claude Davis and Tyrone Mears for the trip to London.

In November, Chelsea won 2-0 at Pride Park thanks to goals by Salomon Kalou and Shaun Wright-Phillips.
