Chelsea have made a stunning swap offer for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.
The Times says Chelsea offered Michy Batshuayi and Ross Barkley to West Ham in an £80million deal for Rice.
But the Hammers REJECTED the swap deal and are holding out for £80m in cash.
David Moyes’ side are not interested in taking on the rarely used pair.
Both Barkley and Batshuayi have had peripheral roles in Frank Lampard’s Chelsea set-up.
But the club were hoping to bring down the massive price tag on Rice’s name by offering some of their unwanted stars as makeweight.
Chelsea were hopeful as West Ham previously tried to sign Batshuayi and Moyes coached Barkley at Everton, but it appears to have done them no favours.
