According to The Sun via Tribal Football, Chelsea are convinced West Ham United are prepared to sell Declan Rice.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard sees the England midfielder as the final piece in his jigsaw puzzle after spending over £200million strengthening his squad this summer.

West Ham insists Rice isn’t for sale but the Blues are confident Rice can be signed and are reportedly preparing a formal bid in excess of £40million before the October 5 deadline.

Rice remains a close pal of Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount after they grew up together at the Blues academy before Rice was released at the age of 14.
