Chelsea eyeing Rice

Chelsea have been by far and away the most active Premier League club in the transfer market this window.

All of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr made the move to Stamford Bridge over the summer.

The Blues then confirmed on Thursday that Edouard Mendy had joined the club on a five-year deal.

Despite having already brought in a host of fresh faces, though, Chelsea do not appear to be done on the transfer front.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Londoners are in talks with Declan Rice’s agent, amid plans to open discussions with West Ham in the coming days.

The Hammers are said to be adamant that they will not sell Rice, but Romano suggests that the midfielder himself is pushing to join Chelsea.

West Ham make Fofana bid

If reports of the Irons’ bid for Wesley Fofana prove accurate, then that may indeed prove the case.

Fofana is a 19-year-old centre-back currently plying his trade with St. Etienne, for whom he has made 29 senior appearances.
