Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel says he would be interested in reuniting with former teammate Frank Lampard in Major League Soccer.

Ex-Blues midfielder Lampard has been in impressive form for New York City FC this season with 12 MLS goals, having struggled during his first campaign with the club.

"There was absolutely no doubt that Frank wouldn't go out there and succeed," Nigeria international Mikel, 29, told Goal. "I am happy that he is back to his best, doing what he loves to do and, one day, who knows, I may go over there and play with him, or play against him."
