Chelsea have continued leaking goals this season, with the Blues conceding nine goals in just five Premier League games this season.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard believes having West Ham midfielder Declan Rice in Chelsea’s midfield alongside N’Golo Kante will help solve Chelsea’s defensive problems.
According to ESPN, Chelsea will try to sign Rice during the January transfer window.
West Ham reportedly value the England international at around £80million and insisted all through the summer transfer window that Rice isn’t for sale.
Chelsea are hoping West Ham’s financial issues will help the Blues sign Rice in January. Rice has not agitated for a departure, but West Ham know they could cash in if needed.
