The pursuit of Declan Rice has taken an intriguing turn as Mauricio Pochettino aligns himself with Frank Lampard’s desire to bring the midfielder to Chelsea.

Rice, a standout performer for West Ham, has been the subject of continuous transfer speculation, and the Blues’ renewed interest could complicate Arsenal‘s plans.

Despite West Ham’s efforts to secure his future with contract offers, Rice is widely expected to leave the club this summer, attracting attention from several Premier League clubs.

Chelsea has made previous attempts to sign Rice, notably during Lampard’s tenure as manager. Speaking about Rice in 2021, Lampard expressed his admiration for the player, saying, “We are fortunate to have him in England.

West Ham are fortunate to have him. He’s a leader, and it is clear that he’s destined for great things.”

Lampard’s appreciation for Rice is evident, and despite the failed attempts to bring him to Chelsea in the past, the club remains keen on securing his services.
