Arsenal are in pole position to sign West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice in the summer. The report suggests Arsenal could offer a £200,000-a-week contract for England international and lure the midfielder to the club, although there will be considerable interest in the footballer from Chelsea and others.
The 24-year-old midfielder should dominate headlines in the summer as he will likely leave the Hammers. Rice will have some of the bigger teams on his trail when the campaign ends, with the Gunners clearly in the picture to make a big move.
The Irons have tried their best to extend England international’s deal. But Declan has rejected their best potential proposal. The English midfielder has reiterated the desire to play at a higher level, compete for titles, and, most importantly, play in the Champions League.
The Englishman has no shortage of interest, with the Gunners considered the front-runners for his signature. Arsenal are ahead of long-time admirers Chelsea, who may want to reignite their chase of Declan Rice to bolster their squad.
