Chelsea are set to continue their phenomenal summer of spending in the coming days, with another defensive acquisition wanted by manager Frank Lampard.
The Blues are expected to finalise a deal for goalkeeper Edouard Mendy by the weekend, and then all attention will turn to Declan Rice at West Ham – according to the Express.
It’s been a transformative summer for Chelsea and there’s a palpable excitement around the prospects of the Blues this season on all-fronts.
Rice is likely to be another big outlay with West Ham certain to hold out for as much as they can possibly get for the 21-year-old.
Frank Lampard is expected to deploy Declan Rice, if he signs, as a defender, not as a defensive midfielder, but his versatility will be welcomed considering there will be plenty of games to come this season.
