Chelsea are ready to bid to bring West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice back to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are considering bringing a new centre-half to Stamford Bridge this summer.

The Blues have had their problems defensively this season and Goal reports the club are now now 'increasingly considering' moves to address that in the coming months.

Rice, released by the Blues as a youth player, has been linked with a return to west London.

Blues manager Frank Lampard sees Rice as a future ball-playing centre-half and is keen to bring him back to the Bridge this summer.
