Frank Lampard has called on Chelsea to offer John Terry a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
The club captain recently revealed that he will leave the Blues at the end of the season as the Premier League outfit had not offered him a new deal.
Chelsea themselves have said that the door has not been completely closed on Terry's future at the club, and Lampard is hopeful that the centre-back will be at the West London outfit next season.
"I would like to see them offer it," Lampard told ShortList. "I think it's obvious John wants it and I think he can still stay at Chelsea.
"Of course I'm friends with John, but purely from a football perspective and from what he's done on the pitch, and as a starting player in all their big and important games when he's started them this season, I think he's been their best defender this year."
Lampard spent 13 years with the Blues before signing for MLS side New York City FC in 2014.
