The Blues have been chasing Declan Rice since last summer (talkSPORT).

And that will be a big worry for the West Ham fans.

There is some good news for the Hammers, however.

Eurosport are now claiming that Chelsea boss Tuchel views £100 million Borussia Dortmund teenager Jude Bellingham as a better fit for his team than Declan Rice.


West Ham get Declan Rice boost

Keeping hold of the 22-year-old will be vital for the Hammers.

The England international is the best and most important player that David Moyes has at his disposal at the London Stadium.

Chelsea switching attention to Bellingham would be great news for West Ham.

Rice seems to be more than happy at the London Stadium.

The Hammers owners matching his ambition in the summer will be key to our hopes of keeping Dec.

Chelsea looking elsewhere will be a massive help as well, there’s no denying that.
