Declan Rice Profile
Declan Rice, aged just 22, has the capabilities to reach the very top of elite level football - his transformation in an often-struggling West Ham outfit has been quite remarkable. The England midfielder has already established himself as the Hammers captain when Mark Noble is not in the starting XI, not to mention the fact he has solidified his position as England’s holding midfielder.
Rice, a former Ireland international before switching to England, stands at 6’1” tall and can operate as a defensive midfielder - his current position - or at centre-back. Rice is now a player on Frank Lampard and Chelsea’s transfer radar, with the west-London club in pursuit of luring the England midfielder to Stamford Bridge - the club that released him aged just 14.
Amassing over 100 Premier League appearances by the age of 21, Rice has plentiful experience for such a young prospect. When it comes to defensive midfielders in the Premier League, Rice ranks among the very best in the division and is a player destined for the top of the game.
Made his senior West Ham debut against Burnley in May 2017
Won Hammer of the Year for the 2019/20 season
Made his senior England debut against Czech Republic in March 2020
Scored his first Premier League goal in a 1-0 victory against Arsenal in 2018
