Declan Rice will definitely make a move this summer.
The England midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from West Ham and has attracted interest from Manchester United and Chelsea in recent times.
He is on contract with West Ham till the summer of 2024 and his consistent performances has gained attention in the eyes of some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Hammers legend Tony Cottee believes the 22-year old should join Chelsea in the summer if he decides to leave.
‘If Declan was to decide to leave, I think he’ll go to Chelsea,’ Cottee told bettingexpert.
‘And the reason for that is he was at Chelsea as a kid. He is best friends with Mason Mount, and he’s grew up with all the young kids at the club.
‘You know, Tammy Abraham, he’s in Italy now, but he grew up with him and Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Reece James.
‘All those young boys that are playing so well for Chelsea, Declan is friends with them. I don’t want him to leave, but if he was leaving, I think most of the West Ham fans wouldn’t be grudging towards the guy going to Chelsea. Because we all know that he was there as a kid.’
‘I haven’t even mentioned Liverpool. I mean, I don’t know whether they would be interested, but you know it’s Chelsea for me.’
