Transfer News: Chelsea could use Tammy Abraham in a deal for West Ham’s Declan Rice

It is clear that the 23-year-old was way below the pecking order for the German manager. Abraham featured just seven times under Tuchel and was not in the FA Cup final as well as the UEFA Champions League final matchday squad.
On the other hand, Dean Jones of Eurosport, speaking on The Football Terrace Podcast (h/t Daily Star) last week stated that Rice is keen on a return to Chelsea.
Rice for Abraham?
“Chelsea are definitely going to go to West Ham and say what’s it going to take? They’re going to do it because they want to know. Even if they don’t decide to pursue it after that point, they need to get the ball rolling, they need to know how possible it is and they know that the player wants to come.”
It is clear that the English striker is not favoured by Tuchel when it comes to displacing Timo Werner from the starting XI. And since that is the case as of now, Abraham’s inclusion in any deal for Rice could be a positive move by the Blues.

Time will tell what happens with regards to Abraham and Rice’s future, but if the two exchanged places this season, not many Chelsea fans would be unsatisfied with the outcome.
