Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich reportedly wants to bring former manager Avram Grant back to Stamford Bridge in order to provide assistance to Frank Lampard.

Former Chelsea manager Avram Grant is reportedly being considered for a return to the club by owner Roman Abramovich to help assist Frank Lampard.

The 65-year-old spent the 2007-08 campaign in the Stamford Bridge dugout but was ultimately sacked after one season despite leading the Blues to an EFL Cup and Champions League final.

Despite his ill-fated stint in the English capital, Sky Sports News reports that Abramovich is keen to get Grant back on board at Chelsea as his experience could prove invaluable to the faltering Blues.

Grant has taken the reins and worked as a technical director for several clubs, and the report adds that any return to Chelsea would most likely be temporary given his preference to manage rather than work behind the scenes.

Chelsea have slipped out of the title race after winning just one of their last six Premier League matches and currently occupy ninth spot in the table.
