The overhaul in Chelsea continues in full force. Frank Lampard’s team has already attracted five players – Hakim Ziesh, Timo Werner, Ben Chillwell, Malang Sar and Thiago Silva, but does not intend to end there. Bayer Leverkusen winger Kai Havertz is also expected to be awarded to Londoners in the coming days for the club’s record amount of 72 million pounds.According to the Sun, the next big goal for Lamprad’s boys will be to attract Declan Rice from West Ham. The publication writes that Chelsea sees in the face of the Englishman another of the missing pieces in the puzzle, which will help the team to pose a serious challenge for the title next season.Rice, who can play equally well in midfield and defense, is voted for the position of central defender in the “blue”.West Ham estimate the 21-year-old Rice at £ 80 million, but Chelsea are willing to wait for his price to fall, knowing that the Hammers must sell urgently before they can start buying new players.The Blues used the same strategy in the transfer of Chillwell. They initially wanted a million pounds from Leicester, but eventually reconciled and sold the left back for 20 million pounds less.If such a deal is reached, the amount of transfers to Chelsea will exceed 250 million pounds this summer, which will be an absolute record in the Premier League. So far, Manchester City has spent 224 million pounds in the summer of 2017.Chelsea to launch Declan Rice transfer raid which would push summer spend over £250m | @dwright75https://t.co/gZKTCTDKxM— The Sun Football ⚽ (@TheSunFootball) August 29, 2020 Follow us anywhere and anytime with the mobile application of Gong.bg.
