It is quite interesting if read an update (from Ed002 on the West Ham page about their potential outbound and players looked at:

* Declan Rice (DM) : 'The club don't want to sell but there will be a deal out there they could accept. '

* Nahitan Nandez (DM) : 'option as a Declan Rice replacement. Agent is offering him around PL clubs but could be expensive. '
* Ross Barkley (CM/ AM) : 'WHU are interested to some extent but could be priced out of a cash move. '

Just maybe Declan Rice to Chelsea could happen at some point.

I really hope so. The guy clearly would love a move to Chelsea as well. Plus he'd add leadership. I expect this transfer to happen, whether it's this summer or in future years.

Also, it's been said that Chelsea would need to sell first before buying any more players, which would make sense.
And Barkley could be of interest to West Ham, so I hope a deal involving Barkley could be worked out. It would lower the price for Declan a bit, while it would allow West Ham to get their man.

I would rather Chelsea sell Barkley and Jorginho; and bring in Declan Rice (or Denis Zakaria) and if need-be, loan out Loftus Cheek. I don’t want Chelsea to sell any of Kante or Kovacic. Ideally, I want a CDM trio of Kovacic, Kante and Declan Rice/ or Denis Zakaria for this season; that’s is if Lampard wants to go with any of 4-2-3-1 or 4–3-3 formation.

Ethan Ampadu is growing up nicely. Is he really that far behind Declan Rice in terms of development?

Where to play Declan Rice?

Not convinced that Declan Rice is a CB either. He has being playing DM for the last two seasons. That is his position imho.

Also, we have it covered with young CBs imho. Tomori being my favourite and also one of the fastest players at the club.

Billy Gilmour is also a very tenacious and talented DM.

{Ed001's Note - Ampadu is a good shout. Perhaps Rice is completely unnecessary?}

03 Sep 2020 12:57:35
We have Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Gilmour, Ampadu, Loftus-Cheek, Barkley and Mount.

Even if Jorginho and Barkley move on this window, that's six players for two or three roles. In an ideal world I'd say Rice is young enough to leave at West Ham for a season whilst we evaluate Ampadu. I think there's room for both in the squad, but at the expense of who?

I like Rice, individually he'd be a great signing. But we've got to be careful with the balance of the squad whilst making all these signings.

Hi ed001, are chelsea looking at any CB's now? Talks of upamecano move has started once again. Also which GK is being looked at?

{Ed001's Note - you are asking the wrong person really, I can't remember which keeper you are after. I think you are done on the defender front for this summer, but Ed002 is the one to ask with regards to Chelsea. I don't look into your moves as he has it all covered.}

03 Sep 2020 13:47:46
A lot of times I forget the Chelsea has got Ampadu. I think he has got to show great maturity this season to really cut it.

03 Sep 2020 14:43:08
What is evident in my opinion is that we need to move Jorgi and Ross this summer. But bringing Rice in I think is one of those important signings that we need to make this summer. He adds so much to the squad in terms of defending and attacking that I would say securing him would be equal to us getting Havertz.
He could be a partner for Silva in defence and he could be a partner for Kanté (if he stays) and Kova in a 2 man defensive midfield role as well. So much versitality, you can't look past him. My prediction is that we will get him towards the end of the window, perhaps even after the first game.

If Lady Luck smiles on Chelsea in terms of injuries to players; the club brings in a good goal keeper and Declan Rice (or Denis Zakaria) ; keeps Kante and Kovacic, I can beat my chest and say Chelsea can win the league this season. Consequently, I know that would mean Barkley, Jorginho leaves; maybe Loftus Cheek/ Ampadu loan.

03 Sep 2020 22:35:35
Realistically I’d leave Rice for another season, he’d be cheaper with one year less on his contract and West Ham could potentially go down. £80m for him is way too much. I’ll obvs back him if he’s signed but can’t see it happening until Emerson, Jorginho and Barkley are all gone and even possibly have to wait for Batshuayi to go too.

{Ed0666's Note - or another team could buy him?

05 Sep 2020 14:53:55
Ed0666 Like who?
Let us know wjow else is interested in Rice.

{Ed0666's Note - I have no idea pal but don’t be so sure only Chelsea would be interested as he’s a quality player. I’m sure his preference would be Chelsea above anyone because he has a massive bromance with Mount but soccer transfers are built on flimsy foundations and some other team could usurp you.
