Chelsea have reportedly set their sights on a deal for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice at the end of the season.
The Blues have snapped up Denis Zakaria on loan from Juventus last summer. However, the 26-year-old midfielder has hardly played for them this term and it is expected that the Swiss will return to Turin in the summer.
The Telegraph claims that West Ham’s Declan Rice could be the main target for the west Londoners.
Chelsea are long-term admirer of the Englishman and he could be available for around £70m.
The 23-year-old midfielder has spent his entire playing career with the Hammers.
Meanwhile, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United could also be potential destinations for Rice next summer.
The England international, who has a contract until 2024, is likely to reject a new long-term deal at West Ham.
