Declan Rice has emerged as England's best midfielder in recent years thanks to his powerful displays with the Three Lions and West Ham.

His stock has risen to the point where Hammers boss David Moyes once demanded £150m as a minimum to lure Rice away from the London Stadium. That's quite a price tag, though the Scotsman also insisted the club had now interest in selling the former Chelsea youngster.

However, that hasn't stopped some of England's biggest clubs courting Rice over the years. Here's who should be looking at a potential deal.


Chelsea have been chasing Rice for a long time and remain the frontrunners to sign him. 90min understands the England international is still the most desired midfield transfer target for the Blues, especially since Todd Boehly took over.

Following the change of ownership, Boehly quickly spoke to West Ham about Rice, who was on the books at Chelsea as a youngster. At that point in June, Rice was deemed not for sale by the Hammers.

Rice has not been shy in voicing his desire for Champions League football and to compete for top trophies. Chelsea are a work in progress at the moment and not guaranteed to compete on either of those fronts right now, but the Blues have sleepwalked to trophies in recent memory and will likely continue to do so.
