Pirlo: 'Lampard, come to Juve!'

Andrea Pirlo has invited Chelsea hero Frank Lampard to Juventus. “If he wanted to try at playing in Italy, I would welcome him at Juventus for sure.”

The England midfielder is 34 and his contract at Stamford Bridge expires in June, so he has been linked with swoops by Lazio and Inter.

Pirlo, who is a year younger than Lampard, believes Turin would be an even more suitable destination.

“I can only make comment on what I see,” he told American television. “And from what I see, Lampard is still one of the best central midfield players in the world.

“If he wanted to try at playing in Italy, I would welcome him at Juventus for sure. In Italy, Frank would comfortably have another four years at the top level.”
