Rice ‘will be last Chelsea target’ after Mendy deal completed


Declan Rice is reportedly being lined up by Frank Lampard as Chelsea’s last business of the summer.

The Blues have had a remarkable transfer window so far, completing deals for seven new stars, including Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell and Kai Havertz.

They have also brought in Thiago Silva on a free transfer as well as Malang Sarr and Xavier Mbuyamba.

A goalkeeper is their top priority, with negotiations ongoing to bring Edouard Mendy in from Rennes for around £30million.

But even after that they plan to test West Ham’s resolve over Declan Rice, with the Chelsea academy graduate thought to be a good option to play at centre-back.

First of all, the new goalkeeper. But after completing the signing of Edouard #Mendy, Declan Rice will be the last target for #Chelsea. He is still in the list of Lampard to close a fantastic transfer window. @SkySport #CFC #Transfers https://t.co/gawhIb1rRM

Angelo Mangiante, a Sky Sports transfer expert, claims Rice will be Chelsea’s ‘last target’ after a deal is completed for a new goalkeeper.

Rice played alongside Mason Mount for England in their 0-0 draw with Denmark on Tuesday; the lifelong pals could be seeing much more of each other in the near future.
