Chelsea are being linked with Declan Rice again as West Ham manager admits that the defensive midfielder could be sold in the summer.
The West London club were rumoured to be ready to bid for the player who grew up in their academy system but was released as a 14-year old throughout last summer, when Frank Lampard was in charge of the club.
At that time West Ham made it clear that they would not sell Rice at any price, but now David Moyes has admitted that the club are prepared to listen to offers for Rice and other stars like Czech midfielder Tomas Soucek.
Rice has been ruled out of action for a month with the ankle injury he picked-up on international duty with England last week, and missed his side’s win over Wolves on Monday night that enabled the Hammers to leapfrog Chelsea into the Champions League places.
