Chelsea chiefs disagree with Lampard over Declan Rice

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is on a collision course over the possible signing of Declan Rice.

Lampard sees the West Ham United star as a key target for this transfer window.

He believes Rice can excel as a defensive midfielder and center back.

However, The Athletic's David Ornstein claims the club's board is unsure about Rice.

They do not believe he is worth the price West Ham want, a reported £70 million.

Chelsea have already spent a lot this summer, and they are wary of bringing back Rice, who was a Chelsea youth player as a kid.

Lampard may have to wait a year to sign Rice, or move his attention to another player.
