We know that the club are going to be looking to sell many of it’s current squad members this summer with a very large and inflated squad right now, but there is scope to still bring in two or three top players for key positions as well, one of which will be in midfield.

He said: “Chelsea must try and sign Declan Rice. People have the right to make mistakes and Chelsea made a mistake when they got rid of him when he was younger. Rice is a fantastic player; he’s strong, clever, technically good, physically a monster, and tactically he can be very useful. It would be a big change if Chelsea signed him because for the first time in a long time we would have someone very strong in the middle of the park. If you have the chance to sign Declan Rice, then you go and get him. He knows the club, I think he cheers the club, and he would bring something special to Chelsea. We have very good players here but we don’t have monsters, we don’t have a strong guy in the middle of the park. I love Rice, he’s like a tower in the middle where you can rely on him and make sure physically, tactically, technically, and mentally the guy will be there 24/7 that’s for sure.”
