Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly a huge admirer of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice and is keen on signing the midfielder this summer.
Ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League game against West Ham on Wednesday, Lampard was asked the latest on Chelsea’s interest in Rice.
Lampard remained coy on Chelsea’s interest in Rice and refused to reveal much.
Lampard said: “Declan Rice is a good player you’re right, and I’ve known DC for a long time, he was in the Chelsea academy.
“But there’s no talk, I keep saying, about every player we’ll be asked about. Until these games and this season is finished, there’s nothing to say.”
Chelsea have already completed deals for Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech. Both players are supposed to join the club officially on Wednesday.
