Thomas Tuchel is believed to be an ardent admirer of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice as a return to Chelsea is reportedly the player’s preference.
According to The Telegraph’s Matt Law, a highly reliable source for Chelsea, Tuchel has revived interest in signing Declan Rice this summer.
The German gaffer is believed to be an admirer of Rice’s abilities, with the former Blues’ Academy starlet working wonders for West Ham United.
It’s understood that the midfielder’s preference is to move back to Chelsea, mainly because of his close friendship with Mason Mount.
The reports adds that Tuchel has personally recommended signing Rice to Marina Granovskaia.
The 22-year-old English man has also been linked with a move to Manchester United ahead of the transfer window.
