“A far better player” – These Chelsea fans name the midfielder they want signed over Declan Rice

Posted by

Some Chelsea fans on Twitter have called on the club to sign Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi instead of reported target Declan Rice.

The Athletic reported back in December that Chelsea were hopeful of striking a deal to sign Rice in the summer of 2021. The Blues spent a bucket load of cash last time around and are presumably intending on following that up with another transfer splash.

Rice has proven his worth for both West Ham and England, with Chelsea lacking options in terms of natural defensive midfielders. While some would consider N’Golo Kante to be one, the Frenchman has been off the boil since Frank Lampard took the job.

Is Rice the man for Chelsea, though, or do the club need to be more creative when determining which defensive midfielder to target? Some fans on Twitter believe that the player they really need to sign is one who scored against them last night.

  1. Ndidi, Casemiro, Koke, Rice etc. none will impress at Chelsea cuz Lampard’s the problem not the players. Pep, Rogers & Ancelioti will do better with the available players in Chelsea.

  2. people easily and quickly submit to their emotions when things are not going as espected. Lampard or any other manager can not bring instant success. Take example of Pep and Klopp with their respective clubs, they were given time before they could do what you are now. So, Lampard needs time and your trust for him to succeed.
