Declan Rice Despirate for Chelsea Deal, Take Action Against West Ham

Report: Rice Ready to Turn Down Third Contract Offer From West Ham Amid Chelsea Interest

Chelsea target and West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice is prepared to reject a third contract offer from the Hammers as he looks to secure a move to Chelsea, as per reports.

The England international has already turned down two contract offers from his club as Chelsea show interest.

According to Matt Law via the Daily Express, Rice would currently turn down a new contract offer from West Ham.

Chelsea and manager Thomas Tuchel have a ‘strong interest’ in signing Rice this summer following an impressive Euro 2020 campaign

The Blues could be set to move for a midfielder this summer, having allowed Billy Gilmour to leave the club on loan to Norwich City for the upcoming season.

A £60 million bid would tempt the Hammers into selling if Rice was to refuse another contract offer.

Speaking on the London is Blue Podcast, Law said: “Declan Rice would reject a third contract offer from West Ham. He wants to be made aware of any bids made for him,

“West Ham would have to have a serious think about any bid that came in over £60m because of the situation.”

It has been reported that Chelsea are keeping in ‘constant contact’ over Rice’s availability this summer and could make a move for the midfielder if he becomes available.

However, with Chelsea set to splash the cash on a forward this summer, the Blues could turn to midfield alternatives such as AS Monaco’s Aurelian Tchouameni.

Declan Rice ‘Wants to be Notified’ of Bids Amid Chelsea Interest

The midfielder wants to be kept in the loop.

Declan Rice wants to be notified of any bids that come in for him as Chelsea are interested in the midfielder, accordinf to reports.

The England international has already turned down two contract offers from his club as interest intensifies.

As per ExWHUEmployee via Simon Phillips, Rice would like to be notified of any bids.

“West Ham guaranteed Declan Rice they would build the squad around him this summer. He feels this hasn’t happened yet due to the lack of signings.

“He currently won’t accept a new deal and wants to be notified of any bids.”

With the news that Rice is disappointed around West Ham’s transfer activity, he could look to move on.

It has been reported that Chelsea are keeping in ‘constant contact’ over Rice’s availability this summer and could make a move for the midfielder if he becomes available.

West Ham manager David Moyes insisted towards the end of the 2020/21 campaign that it would take ‘Bank of England’ money to prize Rice away from West Ham.

“If somebody then turns up and offers you a bundle-load of cash then that’s a club decision, but if you sign a five-year deal anywhere… if you sign a five-year deal with your company then you know you’re probably there for five years, it’s no different for football players unless somebody comes along and poaches you.

“My plan is, you know what I think of Declan, I think he is a future captain of West Ham going forward. When Mark Noble comes to an end then hopefully it will be Declan Rice, so we’ve no intention of letting him go. If it does come it will need to be the Bank of England money.”

The Blues could offer Ross Barkley or Tammy Abraham in an attempt to sweeten the deal for Rice, as the Hammers are interested in both players.
