Chelsea progressively hopeful to sign another defender, with Declan Rice on the plan
As the games go on, it would seem that Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is not sure with his present four centre-back alternatives.
None of Fikayo Tomori, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger or Kurt Zouma have truly stood apart as top performers for the Blues through the span of the entire season, and subsequently, Frank Lampard is progressively hopeful to sign another defender, as per report.
The report guarantees that Chelsea are slowing down over new contract talks with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, with the two players just having two years left on their present deals.
West Ham Declan Rice is one of those being considered by Frank Lampard, according to a similar report. The midfielder began his professional career playing as a centre-back for Chelsea, and The Blues need him back.
West Ham are hesitant to engage any proposals for the England midfielder however, except if they get consigned this season.
