Chelsea are reportedly willing to offer Ross Barkley and Michy Batshuayi to West Ham in exchange for England international Declan Rice.

West Ham have been linked with Batshuayi in the past and are also interested in a summer move for Barkley.

According to The Guardian, West Ham are not interested in Chelsea’s package to prise Rice away from the London Stadium.

The 21-year-old England international is under contract until 2024 at West Ham and David Moyes wants to build his team around him.

Frank Lampard is keen to bolster his defensive options in the summer transfer window and Rice appeals to Lampard because of his ability to play in both central defence and defensive midfield.
