Thursday's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup: Ross Barkley, Declan Rice, Callum Hudson-Odoi

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Chelsea on Thursday, October 1.

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.

Thursday morning's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup:

West Ham United 'to reject all Chelsea bids for Declan Rice'

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.

Any hope of Arsenal or Paris Saint-Germain signing Jorginho is believed to rely on Chelsea completing a move for Rice before the transfer deadline.

Callum Hudson-Odoi 'eager to leave Chelsea for Bayern Munich'

Chelsea attacker Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly still keen on a move to Bayern Munich.

The England international was strongly linked with the German champions during last summer's transfer window but ultimately penned a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge.

The 19-year-old has already made four appearances for Frank Lampard's side this season but has played just 55 minutes of Premier League football across their three fixtures.

According to Sky Deutschland, Hudson-Odoi believes that treble-winning Bayern have more faith in him than Chelsea, and he is interested in moving to the Allianz Arena before the end of the transfer window.

The teenager has scored nine times and registered 11 assists in 65 appearances for the Blues, who have been incredibly active in the current market, bringing in the likes of Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.

Bayern's only major signing this summer has been Leroy Sane from Manchester City.
