Chelsea fans have called the attention of the club to a better player who has been doing greatly and can be a perfect alternative to Frank Lampard’s target Declan Rice.
Declan Rice’s performance against Belgium yesterday have left stigma on some Chelsea’s fans, as the Blues fans think they already have a player who’s able and capable to perform like Rice in the midfield.
Of course, Chelsea are seriously in indeed of a good and brilliant defensive midfielder, as Frank Lampard doesn’t really count on Kante or Jorginho as the kind of defensive midfielder he wants in his squad to build his team.
The Blues manager wants the club to sign Declan Rice at all cost, because he wants him to be his defensive midfielder. Chelsea would have signed him, if they were able to sell out players in the summer transfer window. Still, the Blues are still very interested in him and they hope to bring him to Stamford Bridge during January transfer window.
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s fans believe there’s no need to waste money on Rice, since they already have their own player who can perform like and better than Rice in the midfield. West Ham United splashed a whooping £80m on Rice, as they do not want the Englishman to leave. And, they are also preparing to increase his salary to make him stay. And, that is too much price for Declan Rice.
Aside that, Chelsea have already lined up 2 defensive midfielders to be Declan Rice replacement in January window. But, most Chelsea’s fans have kicked against the idea of getting a new defensive midfielder, whilst they already have a player who can perform better and more versatile than Rice on loan.
Most Chelsea’s fans believe and claim that Ethan Ampadu is better than Declan Rice in the midfield, as they all know that Ampadu is younger, so he still has room for improvement. The fans believe the Wales international can successfully offer what the Englishman cna offer in the midfield. So, no need running after Rice to be their defensive midfielder.
Ethan Ampadu was loaned out to Sheffield United, though the Wales international ain’t a regular starter at the club. But, whenever he plays he delivered a masterclass performance and he had won one MOTM award this season. So, the Blues fans believe no need hunting for Rice while they already have Ampadu.
In addition, the Blues fans claim since the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Billy Gilmour could be given chance under Frank Lampard, the Ethan Ampadu also deserves a chance to prove himself, especially at the defensive role. The Wales international versatility can even make him play as defensive midfielder, centre-back and right-back. So, Chelsea already have what they are looking for on loan.
Ethan Ampadu would be a great addition to Frank Lampard’s squad, as the Wales international versatility could make him play successfully in at least 3 positions on the pitch. Therefore, the fans believe Ampadu can successfully deliver as a defensive midfielder like Declan Rice.
See some Chelsea’s fans comment as they want Ethan Ampadu instead of Declan Rice in the midfield:-
Marvin:- “Technically, Ampadu is better than Rice in the midfield. He just 20-year-old he can deliver better than Rice”
CFC_auntie:- “Bring Ampadu back. Ampadu is a beast, he has speed, he has ball skills and he’s versatile than Rice. He’s more versatile than Rice in the midfield”
CfC-general:- “Ampadu is a better dribbler and more composed on ball than Rice. He’s better than Rice in the midfield. Bring him back please”
Wale:- “Rice is an average player. Ampadu is twice better and more versatile than Rice in the midfield. We should bring him back”
AVI:- “Bring Ampadu back. He’s more vision and more room for improvement than in the midfield”
Psy:- “We need to bring Ampadu back. He’s better and more versatile than Rice in the midfield”
Should Chelsea call Ethan Ampadu back from loan? Could he perform like Rice as a defensive midfielder?
