Hi Ed, can we expect to see Rice at Chelsea this month?

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath Samuel. Lampard is very keen on him though.}

Agree0 Disagree0

West ham would not want to lose a player like him mid season.

The board would want to FL to prove himself this season.

If FL does well and gets us a top 3 finish. Then maybe he gets rice.

We would have to lose Kante jorginho

Think we should just go on with this team this season and have the new players integrate.

I've said since the end of last season that I think Kante's time at the club is winding down to a natural conclusion, and I still believe this is the case. But it was interesting to hear Lampard refer to Kante when he was talking about playing two eights in his post match interview yesterday. Jorginho will certainly have to move on if Rice comes in, but it didn't sound like Lampard would view him as a Kante replacement.

I'm sure Lampard would argue that he needs Rice in order to do well, and get top four. But you're right, the board aren't going to spend money on one of his targets whilst the jury is out. Maybe we'll see a push for Rice if we've improved up to, and in, the Spurs game. Not that WHU will sell in January.

Agreed with both of the above posts. IF Lamps proves himself, I think m Rice comes in the summer. And maybe not next season, but certainly the 22/ 23 campaign our first choice CM pair would be Gilmour and Rice.

I think Kante has probably got 2 more seasons at the very top. I know people play on longer now days, but his game is based around covering silly ground every game, can he really do that twice a week when approaching his mid 30's. I hope I'm wrong and he adapts to just sitting back, because on his day his reading of the game is on another level. Plus he would be a great player to just role out on the big occasions.
