Sunday's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup: Declan Rice, N'Golo Kante, Antonio Rudiger

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Chelsea on Sunday, September 27.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Chelsea eye possible reinforcements.

The Blues failed to bring in a single player during the January window, despite seeing their transfer ban cut short by FIFA, but have already been busy this summer.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Stamford Bridge.

Sunday morning's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup:

Declan Rice 'agrees five-year Chelsea deal'

West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has allegedly agreed a five-year contract with Chelsea.

The Hammers have remained consistent with their stance that Rice, who is tied to the London Stadium until 2024, is not for sale this summer.

However, speculation regarding a switch to Chelsea refuses to go away, despite the Blues having some way to go to meet West Ham's £80m valuation.

According to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, the 21-year-old has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea ahead of a potential switch.

Schira claims that the East London outfit have rejected an offer of £45m plus add-ons from their city rivals in recent weeks.

The reports come at a time when West Ham are being linked with a number of Chelsea players, including Emerson Palmieri, Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Inter Milan target N'Golo Kante 'open to Chelsea exit'

Midfielder N'Golo Kante is reportedly open to leaving Chelsea for Inter Milan before the end of the summer transfer window.

Frank Lampard has frequently spoken highly of the 29-year-old, who has won the Premier League and Europa League during his four-year spell at Stamford Bridge.

However, at a time when the Blues are looking to recoup funds to sign West Ham United's Declan Rice, Kante has been linked with an exit.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the World Cup winner would be happy to secure a reunion with former boss Antonio Conte at San Siro.

Inter have allegedly been informed that it will take a bid of £46m for Chelsea to give the green light for Kante's exit.

The Serie A side must make at least one sale before being able to meet the demands set by the West London side.
