Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is considering bring back Avram Grant to the club in an advisory role to help out manager Frank Lampard.
He believes that the 65-year-old can provide support and the benefit of his experience to Lampard who has been enduring a tough spell of late, with a run of only one Premier League win in six games. As a result, the club have now fallen to ninth in the table despite spending well in excess of £200 million in the last transfer window.
The much-travelled Israeli took charge of Chelsea in the 2007 and 2008 and also worked in the Premier League with Portsmouth and West Ham.
More recently he has worked with Partizan Belgrade and was in charge of the Ghana national side for three years.
His last job in football was when he became interim charge of Indian side NorthEast United. That made him the first Asian head coach in the history of the Indian Super League.
