According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano via Daily Mirror, West Ham midfielder Declan Rice is keen on joining Chelsea.
The West Ham star was released by Chelsea at the age of 14 but wants to return to Chelsea after impressing at West Ham.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is a huge fan of the midfielder and believes Rice will bring balance to Chelsea’s midfield.
Chelsea are set to make another move for Rice in January but Rice is unlikely to force a move through as he has immense respect for West Ham after putting so much trust in him that he has become an England regular.
It means a January transfer looks increasingly unlikely with the Hammers unlikely to want to lose one of their main players halfway through the season.
