Report: Chelsea ready to sign N’Golo Kante replacement for just £50million in few weeks

According to latest report, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is keen on signing a holding midfielder and has identified West Ham midfielder Declan Rice as his ideal player.

According to Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, West Ham might be forced to accept a fee of £50million for Rice due to the financial difficulties caused by the Covid-19.

“I think West Ham would be looking to get as much as they can,” Ferdinand said on his FIVE YouTube channel.

“I think with the Covid-19 situation, the price has to be altered again.

“West Ham would be looking for £70m plus without Covid but with Covid it will be around £50m or a bit lower than that maybe.”
