According to a report from Sky Sports, Chelsea are interested in bringing back former Chelsea Academy player Declan Rice to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea were reportedly already looking for a new defensive midfielder in the winter — (ed.note: perhaps seeing the whisper-it-very-quietly-decline and persistent injuries in Kanté) — but were unable to get any action from Lille over Boubakary Soumaré. Rice, who at age 21 already has 90 Premier League appearances, is supposedly our new primary target.
