Richard Keys has urged Declan Rice to join Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

The sports presenter believes the midfielder is a ‘perfect replacement’ for N’Golo Kante.

The English International’s future is unclear with the Hammers, as he turned down his third contract already.

Therefore, if a good offer comes Rice would be open to leave the London Stadium this summer.

Speaking via West Ham Zone, Key made an admission:

“The obvious one in midfield would be Rice. N’Golo Kante has all but run himself to a standstill. 


“Rice would be a perfect replacement. Would West Ham sell? Of course, they will if the money is right. 


“I’d give you £150m for him all day long. If Rice pushes hard it might not take that much.”
