Los Angeles club confirm interest in Stamford Bridge star.
Los Angeles Galaxy have confirmed that they are looking at signing Frank Lampard in the future as one of their Designated Players.
Each MLS club are allowed three Designated Players able to go above the standard salary cap, and the Galaxy currently have David Beckham, Landon Donovan and boyhood fan Robbie Keane on their books.
However, should any of those move on, the California club have their sights locked on another Premier League veteran in Lampard.
Tim Leiweke, president of LA Galaxy owners AEG, has stated the Chelsea stalwart is on their radar.
“I am a fan of Frank’s, I think he is a great player. When I think of Chelsea, I think of Frank Lampard,” Leiweke said to Sky Sports News.
“You should ask him, it took us two years to get David here the first time. We are working on the next DP.
“We are going to continue to work on the next DP and there are about half-a-dozen guys we have a good relationship with but first we have to have a slot and we don’t have a slot.
David Beckham too was keen to work with his old England midfield colleague again.
“If he does decide to walk away from Chelsea, then of course; which team would not want him?” asked the former Manchester United, Real Madrid and AC Milan star.
“The owners are very persuasive, so of course there is a chance.”
