Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly interested in a summer move for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, with the boss keen on using the midfielder as a defender.

According to West Ham boss David Moyes, Rice hasn’t reached his potential yet.

“If you think of the great players that have been at West Ham over the last 125 years, [they’ve had] some stunning players,” Moyes said.

“Declan Rice is not anywhere close to that level yet.

“So Declan has got a lot of improvement to do to meet that level but he is a very, very good player.

“I have had the chance to see a lot of players at the top level, their qualities, Declan has many, many of them.

“My idea is to build West Ham around Declan Rice.

“I see Declan Rice as a future captain of West Ham, for many reasons I am looking forward to working with Declan and unless I am told different or things change he is a very big part of the club to me.”
