Chelsea are planning to bring West Ham United’s star player, Declan Rice to the London side this summer.
But the deal will not be easy as West Ham are not ready to let go an important player like Rice, unless something big is offered.
Chelsea have a plan to conquer this potential stumbling block though, according to Football Insider.
The Blues are set to offer West Ham one or more of Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma and Michy Batshuayi in exchange for Rice.
Tomori would be on a season long loan deal only, but Batshuayi and/or Zouma would be offered on permanent moves.
Rice began his career playing as a centre back in the Chelsea academy, and it is in this position that Chelsea are looking to sign him back in, as per The Athletic’s report.
