Coming to America LA want Lampard to join their Galaxy of stars
LA Galaxy say they are attempting to bring Frank Lampard to the United States.
With David Beckham now tied to another two years with the Californian side, they are now setting their sights on luring the Chelsea midfielder.
The future of Lampard, 33, remains in doubt at Stamford Bridge after losing his regular starting role this season under Andre Villas-Boas.

'We are going to continue to work on the next DP and there are about half-a-dozen guys we have a good relationship with but first we have to have a lot and we don’t have a slot. I am a big fan of his.'
As well as Beckham, Galaxy also have Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan on their books, who are currently on loan at Aston Villa and Everton respectively.
