According to an update by Fabrizio Romano, via West Ham news, Chelsea will make a move for midfield star Declan Rice again in January – with the player apparently wanting the transfer, having already agreed personal terms.
Rice, who has been a crucial player for the Hammers, was linked repeatedly with a London Stadium exit over the summer – with the west Londoners firmly interested in his signing, according to numerous reports.
Will Declan Rice leave for Chelsea in January?
Yes, it is inevitable
No, he's staying 100%
Now, as per Romano, Chelsea haven’t given up in their quest to sign Rice – with January looming and personal terms having allegedly been agreed over a multi-million pound move.
As a result of this latest update, many West Ham fans have been seething – either dismissing the news entirely or panicking over the prospect of their star player moving across London.

I doubt he’d force the move now. Especially if Chelsea are out of the Champs League before Jan.
