West Ham star Declan Rice wants to join Chelsea after the Blues held talks with his agent about a potential move to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Frank Lampard has already been extremely busy in the transfer market so far this summer as he’s splashed out huge money on Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz, Edouard Mendy, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr.

However, the Blues boss doesn’t appear to be finished just yet as Lampard has also been strongly linked with a swoop for Rice this summer and it looks like Chelsea are going to make a late push for his signature during the closing stages of the window.

Lampard sent Kai Havertz message 

Kai Havertz can become a modern day Johan Cruyff, according to a man who has had a close eye on the German for a number of years.

Chelsea spent £72million – potentially rising to £90m – to bring the youngster to Stamford Bridge this summer from Bayer Leverkusen.

Havertz shone for Leverkusen last season and was linked with a number of European powerhouses, but the current financial state of play played into Chelsea’s hands.

After a quiet start in his opening two Premier League games for Chelsea, the 21-year-old hit a hat-trick in the Carabao Cup thumping of Barnsley.

RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick has seen Havertz develop over the years in the Bundesliga – even trying to sign him from Leverkusen – and said Frank Lampard has got his hands on a real talent.

“I have no doubt whatsoever he will become a sustainable success and that he will be one of the top players in the next two or three years,” Rangnick told Sky Sports.

“I think his best position is either a number 10 or if you play a 4-3-3 he is one of the two offensive number 8’s in midfield,” said Rangnick.

“Very versatile, almost the complete offensive midfielder, he can score goals, give assists, 360 degree radar that when you give the ball to him he knows where he is being positioned in relation to his teammates and his opponents.

“It’s only a question of time until the whole league sees what kind of player Chelsea has signed.”
