Chelsea receive warning over £70 million player. Abramovich must be willing to spend big

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on signing West Ham midfielder Declan Rice this summer with the intention to use the England international as a centre-back.

West Ham boss David Moyes has warned the Blues must be willing to spend big to sign the England international.

Moyes said: “Declan is under contract.

“He goes on holidays now as far as I know. Hopefully he is selected for England.

“He will be back in pre-season with us in three weeks. That’s as much as I can tell you.

“Rightly so Declan should have attention because he’s such a good player.

“But he’s not going anywhere unless you get one of those steel vans that have the cash in it. You better bring one of them!”
