Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has an infamous reputation of ruthlessly sacking managers, and Lampard is now believed to be walking a tightrope.
The favourite to replace him is Rodgers, who has Leicester sitting third in the table and just a point off the pace.
Leicester missed out on Champions League qualification on the final day of last season, but have been transformed into a top-four challenger since Rodgers replaced Claude Puel nearly two years ago.
