Chelsea are on the brink of completing the transfer of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Rennes. The Blues have already signed Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz.
Now, a deal for Mendy expected to be completed in just day for a fee in the region of £20m.
However, according to Football.london, Chelsea won’t be done there. The transfer chief Marina Granovskaia will turn her attention to West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.
“It was always the plan, there was no intention to lose Declan Rice,” Moyes said before his side lost 2-0 to Newcastle on the opening day of the season. We have had no bids and no enquiries. There is a lot of speculation but I can only tell you what I know.
“I wouldn’t want to lose him anyway because he is too big a player for us, he is too important and a big part of the squad. He’s been captain already, I think he is learning a lot of leadership from Mark Noble, so I hope in the future we will have an incredibly talented footballer with great leadership skills and will be the captain of West Ham.”
Chelsea take on Brighton in the Premier League from 8.15pm this evening.
