‘Of Course Moyes Is Interested’ ‘Trying To Use Him In Rice Deal’ Fans React To West Ham’s Interest In Chelsea Midfielder

West Ham are among a number of clubs interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan, according to reports in the English media.

The 24-year-old was surprisingly omitted from the squad for the Blues’ 6-0 win over Barnsley in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night and manager Frank Lampard suggested after the game that there could be movement in the transfer market in the coming days.

Supporters on Twitter are not sure what to make of the Hammers’ interest in Loftus-Cheek, with some worried it could have implications for the future of Declan Rice:



Loftus-Cheek suffered a serious Achilles injury 16 months ago, which has taken him a long time to recover from. He is highly rated by Lampard, and he even started Chelsea’s first game of the season against Brighton.

However, he did not put in a good performance and was substituted midway through the second half. It is thought a loan move could be considered in order for him to recover his previous form.
