Frank Lampard is reportedly fighting a losing battle to convince the Chelsea hierarchy that Declan Rice is worth his £73m price tag.

“Declan Rice is a good player, you’re right, and I’ve known Declan Rice for a long time, as he was in the Chelsea academy, but there’s no talk,” said Lampard.

Lampard is also interested in West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, despite denying interest in the England man in June.

“So I would say that Rice to Chelsea is very improbable.” Meanwhile, complications have arisen in the final stage of negotiations between Chelsea and Rennes for goalkeeper Mendy, TEAMtalk understands.

Specifically, previous suggestions were that Rennes were keen to get a Chelsea player on loan as part of the transfer.

Ornstein said: “Frank Lampard is really keen on Declan Rice and would like to convert him into a top class centre-back.

TEAMtalk understands that Chelsea agreed the fee for the Senegalese star’s move last week.
