Drogba knows Lampard as well as anyone and he believes his success at Derby shows he is ready to manage the club where they both made their names.
After just a season in charge, a deal has been reached for Maurizio Sarri to leave the club and join Serie A champions Juventus, according to United Kingdom reports, with former playing favourite Frank Lampard lined up to be Chelsea's first English manager in 23 years.
Sky's Kaveh Solhekol tweeted on Thursday night: "Chelsea have agreed deal with Juventus for Maurizio Sarri".
Lampard led Derby County to the Championship play-off final in his first season in management but was unable to help the Rams secure promotion to the Premier League.

Sarri has been an uncomfortable fit with fans at Stamford Bridge and despite winning the Europa League and finishing third in the Premier League, there is a perception the chain-smoking coach is unwilling to adapt tactics when things go wrong.
Chelsea tend to allow managers to bring along their own coaching staff - such as Sarri - and Lampard should keep faith in the team who he started his journey with.
The Italian champions are keen on the brand of football Sarri imposed during three years at Napoli when only Juventus' remarkable consistency prevented the Neapolitans a first league title since the days when Diego Maradona graced the San Paolo pitch.
