Chelsea news: Declan Rice transfer boost as Lewis Hamilton comments on takeover

Chelsea‘s season has taken a curious turn in recent weeks.

While the Blues have shown promise in matches away from Stamford Bridge with impressive wins at Southampton, Real Madrid and against Crystal Palace at Wembley, when they’ve played in front of their own fans they’ve collapsed.

The 4-2 home loss to Arsenal on Wednesday was the latest example, with the Blues wide open in defence during a dismal display. It was the second home game in succession in the Premier League in which they’ve conceded four times, following the 4-1 loss to Brentford.

Fans will want to see the team put that right this weekend as they host West Ham United.

Why has Chelsea’s previously solid defence become so leaky? Let us know in the comments section below!

Rice transfer boost

Chelsea transfer target Declan Rice has reportedly rejected a new contract offer from West Ham United.

The England international has emerged as one of the best central midfielders in the Premier League this season and Hammers boss David Moyes has recently suggested Rice would be worth £150 million in the transfer market.

However, the prospect of Rice leaving the club in the summer appears to have increased and the Blues will no doubt continue to be linked with a move for him. The 23-year-old was previously in the Chelsea academy as a youngster and has spoken about supporting the Blues growing up.

Hamilton speaks out on Chelsea bid

Seven-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has spoken of his excitement at potentially being involved in a consortium to buy Chelsea.

The Blues are looking for new owners after the sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich and Hamilton’s involvement in the bid put forward by Martin Broughton has been confirmed. Tennis icon Serena Williams is another sports star backing that offer.

When asked about the potential bid at the Emilia Romagna grand prix this weekend, Hamilton – who has previously said he is an Arsenal fan – spoke candidly about his interest. He said: “I’ve been a football fan since I was a kid and played from the age of four to about 17, I played in my school team every year through my childhood. I’ve been to numerous games.”

Lukaku warning issued to Haaland

Former Arsenal striker Paul Merson believes Romelu Lukaku’s struggles for Chelsea this season should serve as a warning for Erling Haaland.

Manchester City are currently the favourites to secure the Norway international, who is rated as one of the best young forwards on the planet. However, Merson believes the promise shown by Haaland in Germany may not necessarily translate to English football.

“Haaland has plenty of pace and is a good finisher. He will score goals for City if they get him, and it looks like they will,” he said. “But there won’t be a lot of grass in front of him at City. Look at Romelu Lukaku. He has the same problem.”
