Chelsea informed £100M valued target ‘is 100 per cent’ leaving rivals
Chelsea have been told that Declan Rice is 100 per cent leaving West Ham in the coming transfer windows.
Over the past few seasons Declan Rice has developed into one of the best players at the club – and one of the most impressive midfielders that the Premier League has to offer.
He really is the leader at the Hammers and a man that they are hoping to keep at the club for as long as they are possibly too – but that has not stopped speculation regarding his long-term future at the club
But now Wenham has opened up and told the Hammers that they should brace for the departure of Rice – and the massive decline of the club when he officially departs.
“Without Rice, what identity do West Ham have?” reporter John Wenham told Football Insider
“For me, whatever you think about Mark Noble as a player, he gave West Ham a clear identity as a club. He was a supporter on the pitch and I see that in Declan Rice.
“They had Noble for over 10 years, to lose Rice at 23, it would be very disheartening for them. It would signal a massive decline in a club that reached the semi-final of the Europa League last season.
“I think he’s 100% leaving West Ham, a deal now is unlikely but in the summer, 100%.”
When Declan Rice officially comes onto the transfer market – we are sure that Chelsea will make a move as they are the clear favorites to try and get some kind of deal done.
He could cost some serious money -but he is certainly a player that Blues fans would like to see on a weekly basis and certainly a player that would make them more defensively sound.
