West Ham star to play as Centre-back at Chelsea
Chelsea are viewing West Ham midfielder Declan Rice as the answer for their defensive issues, as their vulnerabilities were uncovered again in a 3-2 defeat to the Hammers on Wednesday evening.
The Blues have surrendered the same number of goals as fifteenth spot Brighton in the Premier League this season.
Declan Rice was released by Chelsea as a 14-year-old and has since proceeded to build up himself as a normal in the core of midfield for club and country.
Chelsea have been connected with a move to sign Declan Rice since March, and as indicated by Ivisionsport, they are thinking about him as the immediate answer for their central defensive problems, as opposed to as a midfielder.
Declan Rice started his career as a defender, just rising as a central midfielder during the 2018/19 season because of his noteworthy passing capacity.
The report expresses that Chelsea consider Rice as central defender material since he seems to be ‘supervising, has an emanation about him and critically talks/conveys truly well.’
it is said that Declan Rice is presently one of the ‘fundamental names being talked about’ by the Blues’ hierarchy.
He is young and English is also viewed as a little something extra, with the talented youngster fitting the shape of player that Frank Lampard is seeking to assemble his squad around.
In June it was accounted for that Chelsea were certain of signing Declan Rice for £45m this summer, with the England International to be used at the centre of a three man defence.
West Ham will probably slap a huge price tag on their valued asset. Declan Rice despite everything has four years left on his contract at the London Stadium, however should the Hammers endure the drop, they might be compelled to sell trying to adjust the books.
Thursday’s 3-2 triumph was crucial in their bid to avoid relegation, however the Hammers are still only three points over the bottom three.
