According to reports, West Ham United is determined to keep Declan Rice in the middle of Chelsea’s interest.
Until 2024 the 21-year-old is under agreement at the Hammers but has been constantly linked to a move away from London Stadium following promising performances over the past two seasons.
Manchester United has perhaps cooled their interest in the game recently but Chelsea is heard to be enjoying a reunion with their former youth player.
According to Goal, West Ham is not preparing to partition with Rice this summer. Fresh reports have indicated that David Moyes’ side could be up for sale.
The report argues that the Hammers are determined to keep Rice on the books next season, amid reports that to cope financially with the coronavirus pandemic they may be forced to sell their most precious commodity.
Rice has made 101 club appearances in all competitions, including 29 top-flight appearances this season, since he became a professional at West Ham in 2015.
