Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reportedly interested in signing West Ham midfielder Declan Rice this summer.
The Blues were strongly linked with the England international last summer but a move failed to materialise.
While former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard intended to use Rice as a centre-back at Chelsea, Tuchel has a different plan for the England international.
According to Daily Express, Tuchel would play Declan Rice in midfield despite Frank Lampard previously wanting the West Ham star to be a centre-back.
Tuchel intends to play Rice in central midfield alongside Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.
