Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reportedly a big admirer of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

The Blues were reportedly interested in a move for Rice during the summer transfer window but failed to submit an official bid for the England international due to West Ham’s £100million valuation.

According to 90min via Daily Express, Rice views the current Premier League campaign as his final one at West Ham and will assess his options in the summer of 2022.

The England international has reportedly turned down two offers of a new contract at West Ham as he expects to leave the club this summer.

The former Chelsea academy prospect, who joined West Ham aged 14, still has three years to run on his West Ham contract.
