Chelsea are likely to make a move for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice this month and could drop their interest altogether.

The 21-year-old was heavily tipped to join the Blues last summer, but a deal never materialised before the transfer deadline.

He has since been regularly linked with the west London side, but David Ornstein claims that the midfielder is no longer a priority target.

Blues boss Frank Lampard is a huge admirer of the England international, but the club's hierarchy have their reservations over the midfielder.

While the Hammers' £80m asking price remains stiff, the hierarchy are not convinced by the midfielder's ability as a whole.

Rice has more than three years remaining on his Hammers contract with the option for another 12 months.

He has recently been handed the captain's armband on a regular basis and is regarded as a undisputed starter in the midfield.

Rice has been ever-present for the Hammers in the Premier League this term. He has missed just one league game for them since September 2018.

However, Declan Rice would be looking forward for Chelsea Medical at Stamford Bridge.
