‘We Don’t Want Any Cast Offs’ ‘The Last Thing We Need’ Fans Dismiss Latest Update About Chelsea’s Attempts To Sign Rice

Chelsea could use any one of six players in their bid to sign West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, according to ExWHUEmployee.

There had been reports previously that three stars could be offered to the Hammers, including Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori and Michy Batshuayi, but the latest claims suggest Ross Barkley could also be made available.

Supporters on Twitter have called on their club to resist any part-exchange deal for Rice:



With Frank Lampard’s side looking to seal a deal for Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz, it appears the Blues are looking to reduce their outgoings in their attempts to snap up Rice.

It’s very unlikely to succeed, though, with West Ham having set a very high price tag for the player. There is no way he will be let go on the cheap, considering his importance to the team, and the Irons will certainly not be impressed with the players that Chelsea are offering in exchange for him.
