Declan Rice is reportedly set to tell West Ham ‘I want to join Chelsea’ this summer transfer window.
We have just completed another transfer deal in the shape of Edouard Mendy to challenge current number one Kepa, but it is heavily expected that the club will make one more transfer move to try and bring Rice to the club.
Rice is one of the best hoping midfielders in the Premier League and has been tipped to become one of the very best in the game, but he needs to make that big move to a big club in order to make that next step in the game.
And amid all reports in the media which are claiming that we are preparing a massive £70 million deal to try and get the man signed up, the midfielder is reportedly going to tell the Hammers that he wants to make the move to Stamford Bridge.
Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, Fabrizio Romano said: “Chelsea are trying to do the same [as Liverpool]. ‘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’.”
He will be more than welcome if the reports are true.
