Chelsea desperate to agree deal for 21-year-old Premier League promising player

Chelsea are reportedly prepared to part ways with academy graduate defender Fikayo Tomori on loan as they look to strike a deal for West Ham United’s key man Decal Rice.

The West London club have already been heavily active in the transfer market and are prepared to welcome Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech to Stamford Bridge ahead of the next season.

Frank Lampard is supposedly keen to shore up his backline this summer transfer window, with English midfielder mentioned as a potential signing alongside with another Englishman, Ben Chilwell.

According to The Athletic, Frank Lampard’s side are open to allowing Tomori to join the London rival on a temporary deal, however, the West London club are reluctant to let the 22-year-old depart from the club permanently following his breakthrough campaign.

However, West Ham would reportedly demand a fee in excess of £70m for Rice, who still has four years on his current deal to expire at the London Stadium.

Should Rice make the move across the capital to join the West London club, the England international would allegedly be used as a centre-back by Frank Lampard despite playing as a defensive midfielder at West Ham United.

The Blues boss has already been given significant backing in the transfer market and suggested there will be further additions

Frank Lampard has not ruled out a spending spree amid reports linking Kai Havertz and Jan Oblak with Chelsea.

Lampard has already sealed the big-money signings of Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech and RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner.

The Blues are said to be leading the chase for forward Havertz, who Bayer Leverkusen reportedly value in the region of €100million (£90m/$115m), and Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Oblak is also thought to be a target.

Lampard was unable to do any business before the start of this season due to a transfer embargo, which was lifted in December.

The former England midfielder did not reveal whether Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to spend big yet again, stating he is focused on the challenge of securing a top-four finish in the Premier League and winning the FA Cup.

Liverpool have missed out on the signing of Belgian youngster Ardjouma Junior Diomandé after Nice moved to secure his signature.

That’s according to Foot Mercato, who cover the player’s situation in an exclusive on their website today.

They explain that several clubs around Europe have all been chasing the 17-year-old, who joined Eupen on a free transfer from Genk last summer.

Liverpool, Lyon, and Real Madrid are named among the clubs to have been trying to secure his signature, but it is Nice who have won the race.

Lyon were the first club to be ‘positioned’ for him, and their training director Jean-François Vulliez made a last-minute call to him, promising him the opportunity of training with the senior side to try and tempt him away from Nice.

The player, however, was ‘seduced’ by the project offered by Patrick Vieira’s side and thus turned away from the interest elsewhere, namely in Madrid and Liverpool.

Nice’s intention is to get Diomandé into the first team as quickly as possible, with the move considered a ‘great operation’ for the club.
