According to The Athletic, Chelsea transfer guru Marina Granovskaia wants to sign Rice and will offer Abraham in return to secure a deal.
The 22-year-old midfielder left Chelsea’s academy in 2014 to join West Ham, where he has since become a Premier League and England regular.
The Hammers reportedly want a whopping £100MILLION for Rice, who has three years left on his existing contract at the London Stadium.
Abraham is not thought to be part of Blues manager Thomas Tuchel’s plans after being dropped last season, leaving Prem clubs on red alert.
The Hammers are believed to be interested on signing the 23-year-old, who’s scored an impressive 91 goals in 215 professional appearances.
Chelsea have reportedly placed a £40m price tag on Abraham to make Rice a more affordable option.
