Rice, a standout performer for West Ham, has been the subject of continuous transfer speculation, and the Blues’ renewed interest could complicate Arsenal‘s plans.

Manchester City, Arsenal, and Manchester United have all been linked with the 24-year-old, but according to reports from 90min, Pochettino is determined to secure Rice’s signature to bolster Chelsea’s midfield options.

Pochettino, who is set to take charge at Stamford Bridge, views Rice as a key addition to his squad and wants to ensure that Chelsea maintains their long-standing interest in the player.

While Arsenal appeared to be in the lead for Rice’s signature, there is a sense of optimism at the Emirates Stadium that the midfielder will join their ranks, potentially replacing Granit Xhaka.

However, Pochettino hopes to sway the situation in his favor with his renowned managerial skills.

Chelsea has made previous attempts to sign Rice, notably during Lampard’s tenure as manager. Speaking about Rice in 2021, Lampard expressed his admiration for the player, saying, “We are fortunate to have him in England.

West Ham are fortunate to have him. He’s a leader, and it is clear that he’s destined for great things.”

Lampard’s appreciation for Rice is evident, and despite the failed attempts to bring him to Chelsea in the past, the club remains keen on securing his services.

The decision ultimately rests with Rice, and Lampard respects the player’s commitment to West Ham, acknowledging his exceptional performances and dedication.

Moreover, Chelsea could further disrupt Arsenal’s transfer plans by reigniting their interest in Brighton star Moises Caicedo.

Both Chelsea and Arsenal had their bids for the Ecuadorian midfielder rejected in the January transfer window. However, Brighton has indicated a greater willingness to entertain offers for Caicedo in the upcoming summer transfer window.

As the transfer saga unfolds, all eyes will be on the battle for Declan Rice’s signature. With Chelsea’s renewed interest and the backing of incoming manager Pochettino, the competition between Chelsea and Arsenal intensifies, adding another layer of intrigue to the summer transfer market.
