Reason Chelsea need to sign England midfielder
Chelsea stay keen on signing £70m transfer target Declan Rice from West Ham and accept he could develop as a key player for the club under Frank Lampard.
The Blues have been intensely connected with a move for Declan Rice in the course of recent months and are plotting an offer for the West Ham star ahead of summer’s transfer window.
Chelsea have just burned through £80m of their transfer spending plan on RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner and Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech, but Frank Lampard still interested on reinforcing his squad in different areas.
Chelsea boss needs to sign a left-back, Leicester City and England ace Ben Chilwell is the club’s best option target and he’s keen to bring Kai Havertz to Stamford Bridge.
Declan Rice is also pulling in generous enthusiasm from the west London outfit and report state Chelsea are interested to secure his signature for two key reasons.
The youngster is seen as a perfect target to reinforce Frank Lampard’s choices at centre back, where he has played for most of his career regardless of spells in West Ham’s midfield.
