West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice's value could drop to around £50m ahead of the summer transfer window due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic - in a boost to four of the Premier League's biggest clubs.

The Blues set their sights on Rice last summer, but after splashing out in excess of £200m on the likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, found themselves unable to lodge a bid which came anywhere close to the Hammers' asking price, which was closer to £80m at the time.

Rice remains one of Chelsea's top transfer targets and they are expected to reignite their pursuit at the end of the season, but they will now have to deal with Rice's father Sean, who took over the 22-year-old's affairs towards the end of 2020.

Sean is now working closely with his son to plan out Declan's next move, and sources have confirmed to 90min that he has received interest from a handful of other suitors who would be interested in signing Rice at a lower price.
