Chelsea have folded their sleeves ready to go back to the market to fish for new talent. It is of no doubt the London club spent massively last summer totalling over £200m. Despite making those vital signings, the board isn't impressed with their performances. Thomas Tuchel has told Marina Granovskaia his desire for getting a striker, central defender and a defensive midfielder.
Undoubtedly, Marina was determined to get Declan Rice from West Ham. However, the asking price did not match Chelsea's actual valuation for the youngster. Whilst financial constraints cutting across football clubs, the Hammers could flex their complexities to sacrifice Rice to raise more funds. Chelsea suffer the same financial constraints.
The Blues have many players on loan and they seek to offload most of whom are surplus to the requirements of Tuchel. David Moyes is aware of this and he is ready to accept three players from Chelsea in exchange for the England international. Apparently, Moyes bowed down to pressure to see off Rice from London stadium at the end of the season. "If interested parties table a lucrative offer, we can sell him in the summer," Moyes remarked.
Tammy Abraham, Ruben Loftus Cheek and Andreas Christensen have been offered to West Ham. Whereas Christensen has enjoyed a good spell under Tuchel, it is unlikely he will leave Chelsea at the end of the season. Marina wants to use either Giroud or Barkley in the deal to lure West Ham to sell Rice.
