Chelsea planning big-money bid for Declan Rice?

Declan Rice news

Rice to Chelsea this summer?

Chelsea are reportedly weighing up an offer for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.

The Blues were interested in the 22-year-old last summer, but they decided against an approach, having already spent £225m on signings.

They are back in the running to sign him, and Italian journalist Rudy Galetti claims that an offer will be made in the coming days.

The Hammers are reluctant to lose their prized asset this summer, but a bid of around £80m would convince them to sanction his sale.

Thomas Tuchel is a huge admirer of the England international, and he has already spoken about the player among his backroom staff.

Meanwhile, it is reported that Rice has the hunger to win trophies, and that could push him for a new challenge away from the Hammers.

He has three years remaining on his contract with the Hammers. He was recently offered an improved deal that he has rejected.
