Declan Rice next club odds: Chelsea favourites for West Ham ace but Man Utd odds slashed after Paul Pogba transfer claim

CHELSEA are the leading contenders to sign West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

That's according to bookmakers Paddy Power, who have installed Frank Lampard and Co. as the 2/1 market leaders.


Chelsea were previously priced at 7/2 with the bookies, but that price has shortened as January draws nearer.

Arsenal, who are their biggest competitors for Rice's signature according to the bookies, are priced at 6/1.

But it's Manchester United who've seen the biggest odds shift.

The Red Devils were 14/1 last month but after recent reports, they are now the third favourites at 8/1.

The MEN claim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a massive fan of the 21-year-old and has targeted him to replace wantaway midfielder Paul Pogba.

Manchester City are next in the betting at 14/1 with Liverpool an even bigger price at 16/1.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: "Death, taxes, Manchester United being linked once again with Declan Rice.

"Though, this time, despite the links, they’re not in top spot to sign him – the leaders of that race currently are Chelsea, according to the odds."

The Blues tried to sign Rice over the summer but refused to meet West Ham's £73m valuation.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano sent the rumour mill spinning earlier this week when announcing that Rice wanted a Stamford Bridge switch.

Romano told the Here We Go Podcast: "Declan Rice is pushing to join Chelsea but Declan has been respectful to West Ham.

"Chelsea will have to complete the deal with West Ham. It’s very difficult to pay €80M in this situation."
