It looks like if Chelsea finally want to try and land a player they have been linked with for the last four transfer windows, then they will have the perfect opportunity to do so in the summer.
We have seen the last two Chelsea managers reportedly wanting to sign West Ham and England midfielder Declan Rice, and I am sure that Graham Potter would also not be willing to turn his nose up at the player either if given the opportunity. And he may well soon be given that opportunity.
Chelsea continue to be linked with Rice even under the new ownership.

Now, a report from reliable West Ham insider ExWHUemployee, suggests that West Ham will finally listen to offers for Rice this summer coming.

It is always thought that Rice would pick Chelsea over any other club if an offer was on the table, but it remains unclear yet if Chelsea will make that move.
