Chelsea Finds Another Way To Tempt West Ham Into Selling Declan Rice

Chelsea are willing to offer Antonio Rudiger and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in exchange for West Ham's Declan Rice, according to reports.

Frank Lampard wants to improve his defensive options after a leaky start to the season.

The Blues have been reluctant to stump up the Hammers' asking price, in the region of £70m.

But according to the Transfer Window Podcast, they may have found another way to tempt West Ham into selling their star asset.

They claim that out-of-favour misfits Rudiger and Loftus-Cheek could be sent to the London Stadium in exchange.

Rudiger, 27, is reluctant to join David Moyes' side, however, and has also been linked with Tottenham.

Loftus-Cheek, on the other hand, just wants to get game time having spent so much time on the treatment table.
