Chelsea tipped to sign player legend Terry calls ‘the best in world football in his position’

Chelsea are once again being tipped to try and acquire the services of West Ham star Declan Rice

After failing to make the grade at Chelsea, Rice has now established as one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League, and one of the best holding midfielders in Europe right now

That has led to alot of speculation in the media that Chelsea are the front-runners to try and get a deal done, especially as they need a long-term replacement for the ageing Ngolo Kante

However, despite the speculation, Chelsea have so far failed to make a formal offer to get a deal done and many believe that they are no longer interested in a possible transfer deal

However, after his impressive display against Liverpool at the weekend, there is more speculation that Thomas Tuchel would indeed like to bring him to the club

And any such move would certainly win the approval of Chelsea legend John Terry. Having set up a Twitter account recently, the former Blues skipper was quick to administer praise for Rice.

“Declan Rice is the best in his position in world football. What a player,” Terry stated.

However, Any deal for Rice is likely to cost his suitors close to a British record fee.

The midfielder himself also appears in no mood to consider leaving the Irons and is very much focused on helping West Ham climb higher.

“We are joint third,” said Rice recently. “The big question people asked before the season was whether we could do it again after qualifying for Europe. We’ve found out we can.

“But there are still a lot more games to go. This is the level, the standard. We can’t drop if we want to be a big team.

“I can definitely add [goals] to my game, I have four this season. It doesn’t get better with the feeling of scoring a goal.

“We won 4-1 but we were so sloppy in the second half. We gave the ball away so much. The manager won’t be happy. There were times we could have countered and gave it away.”
