Chelsea receive Rice boost as West Ham will sell for right price

Chelsea are expected to pounce with West Ham United willing to consider offers for Declan Rice.

The Sun says Rice may have to be sold by West Ham if they want to bring in several new faces to strengthen their squad.

Chelsea lead the race for England midfielder Rice, 21, with boss Frank Lampard looking to convert him back into a defender to help solve the problem area in his side.

The Hammers insist they have no desire to sell their player of the year but it would be hard to turn down any offers that get close to their £70million valuation.

Manager David Moyes wants to freshen up a squad he led to Premier League survival.

But with money short because of the lack of revenue from empty stadiums, cashing in on their main man might be the only step open to them.
