Rice keen on Chelsea move

Declan Rice remains a transfer target for Chelsea this summer after their mammoth spending spree.

The West Ham man has caught the eye of Frank Lampard in recent seasons.

And Rice is keen on the move himself, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

“Chelsea are trying to do the same [as Liverpool],” Romano told the Here We Go podcast.

“’We want the big targets and not the plan B back up option’. If you talk with West Ham, you have to be honest they’re saying the player is staying and the player is not moving.

“It won’t be easy and Chelsea are now considering selling players. But Declan Rice will push to join Chelsea. He will go strongly to join Chelsea

“We will have to see what will happen because he also respects West Ham as normal but he’s going to tell West Ham ‘I want to join Chelsea’.

“Now it’s time to see what Chelsea will bid for Declan Rice because Chelsea are still yet to make an offer.”
