Mason Mount has taken to social media to deliver his verdict on reports that Chelsea have made a £50million offer for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

The England international has long been linked with a move to the Blues, who released him from their youth system as a 15-year-old.

Chelsea's defensive problems have seen Blues head coach Frank Lampard eyeing reinforcements to his back-line this summer. 

And according to widespread reports, Rice is the leading transfer priority in terms of centre-backs, as Lampard believes the Hammers star is versatile enough to play in the back four.
