Chelsea have revived their interest in West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.
The 22-year old midfielder has earned a starting role in Southgate’s first-team squad and was instrumental in England’s path to the Euro 2020 final.
He made 32 appearances for the Hammer last season scoring two goals and making one assist.
Thomas Tuchel is also a huge admirer of the England international who has started all six games for England in the Euros.

Romano said: “Rice has always been appreciated by Chelsea and also Manchester United.
“If Manchester United go for [Eduardo] Camavinga, I don’t see Manchester United also going for Declan Rice. So they will have to make a decision.
“The price of Rice is also important. West Ham have no intention to making a discount for him.
“Chelsea have a strong interest in Declan Rice. They like the player. Thomas Tuchel likes the player. We will see if they can find an agreement.
“If they will open an official negotiation with West Ham after last summer it was a complicated one. They’re really interested in Rice.”
