Europa League Holders, Chelsea is currently making efforts towards bringing back West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice
Reports has it that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is on the hunt for a defensive midfielder this summer.
And the English tactician has apparently earmarked Rice as the perfect man to protect Chelsea's backline next season.
Rice spent eight years coming up through the Blues' academy and remains best pals with Mason Mount.
But he was released in 2014 and ended up with rivals West Ham. He has since blossomed into a powerful midfielder and his stats has been very impressive, winning the ball and distributing it to the more creative players.
Rice has since become one of the Premier League's top anchormen and is also a regular for Gareth Southgate's Three Lions. Mason Mount and Declan Rice have been best pals for ages now, they were in the Chelsea academy together and forged a formidable partnership in the youth teams.
Rice was released and he has since grown into an anchorman of premier league pedigree.
