Midfielder ‘is keen to join Chelsea’ after Tuchel told £100 million price to pay

Chelsea’s prime target Declan Rice is very keen on a move to Stamford Bridge from West Ham.

Now the transfer window has been open for a while now but Chelsea fans have not seen too many transfers get announced, with the only real business players departing Stamford Bridge

But there are alot of rumours that Declan Rice is a player that Chelsea are still interested in.

The Hammers are demanding £100million for his services and that is a fee that Chelsea do not want to pay, although they are still open to trying to negotiate a deal for the England International

Now the DAILY EXPRESS claim the Stamford Bridge side are reported to be confident of securing a deal to bring Rice back to the club if they can agree a fee with the Irons

Rice, who also had an impressive Euro 2020 tournament, is also best friends with Mason Mount, having grown up together in the Blues’ academy, before Rice was released and picked up by West Ham.

Carlton Cole recently told Chelsea that he is worth that fee following his exceptional displays at Euro 2020 for the Three Lions.

He told talkSPORT: “Every time he kicked a ball in the Euros, I was like: ‘His price has gone up!’

“He’s becoming more and more desirable and for me, he’s a top, top player – we all know that at West Ham.

“He’s proved himself there and been under the mentorship of a great West Ham legend in Mark Noble.

“He [Noble] hasn’t had any caps for England but been a great model pro. Rice has been working under his tutelage and learning the ropes in how to be a leader on the pitch.

“He’s got the qualities of a centre-midfielder, but he can play as a centre-back as well. All it is with Declan is that he needs games at the highest level.”

Asked whether he was worth £50m, Cole responded: “I’m going double that. In this day and age that is.

“He’s so valued by West Ham and an integral part of this West Ham outfit.

“If you start selling your best players then you’ll be in trouble.”
