Chelsea linked to Rice
The Blues have reportedly received a transfer update about West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.
The German boss is reportedly looking to further strengthen his midfield and the England international’s versatility also allows him to fill in at centre-back.
‘Rice is expected to become the centre of a three-way tussle next summer as Manchester City and Manchester United re-join the race to sign him,’ the report stated.
‘Chelsea were seen as the side most likely to agree on a transfer for him this summer and the player himself was open to returning to the club he grew up at.’
The 22-year-old’s contract expires in three years, and reports state that he has indicated that he will not be signing a new deal and that the club should let him know about potential offers.
