West Ham United are reportedly not prepared to sell Declan Rice before next week's transfer deadline and will therefore reject any bids that might arrive from Chelsea.
Blues boss Frank Lampard is allegedly determined to bring the 21-year-old to Stamford Bridge before the end of the summer transfer window.
A recent report claimed that the London giants will make a final push to sign the England international over the next week in the hope of forcing West Ham into a sale.
However, according to the Evening Standard, the Hammers will reject any offers that arrive for the defensive midfielder, who is believed to be valued by his current side in excess of £70m.
Rice, who has captained David Moyes's side in two of their three Premier League matches this season, has a contract at the London Stadium until June 2024.
