Chelsea target Declan Rice says his dreams to play in the Champions League are ‘urgent’ in a major transfer warning to West Ham ahead of the summer transfer window

Rice has developed into one of the very best holding midfielder in the Premier League right now after establishing himself in that Hammers squad, but his performances has led to alot of speculation about his future.

Chelsea are keen to freshen up that squad in the summer and add a few proven Premier League players that can help them get back into the habit of challenging for those big titles.

Now, the England international has hinted yet again his future may lie away from the Hammers after admitting he sees himself as one of the best players in the world.

Asked about his desire to win trophies and play in the Champions League, Rice said: “It is as urgent as possible. I feel like, not only for me, that’s for every young player as well.

“I see friends that are close to me, big players winning big trophies. You want to be a part of that. You want to be remembered in this career for what you’ve won.

“I feel like I am one of the established top players around the world. I am only 23. But in terms of my playing ability and the way I’ve performed consistently, I see myself as an established player now who’s got good experience and can play at any level if required.

“We are really close with West Ham at the minute and last season it was gutting to lose out on it but we are pushing.”

The Hammers fans may not want to hear this, but if the right offer from a Champions League club gets put on the table in the summer, can you really say that you believe that Rice will not leave the club?
