Arsenal took the lead before signing Declan Rice.
Premier League leaders Arsenal are also known to be leading the race to sign Captain Rice from West Ham United.
Arsenal have set Rice as their main target in the transfer window this summer and are expressing confidence in bringing him.
Rice is hailed as one of the best defensive midfielders in the league. After making his adult debut in 2017, he has grown into a star at West Ham, playing 229 games. He is also a regular in the England national team.
However, Rice has less than 18 months left on his contract with West Ham. Because of this, he is very likely to transfer this summer. Rice hoped to move to a bigger club early on, but West Ham has been blocking Rice’s transfer in the meantime, but there is no more power to hold on.
While prestigious clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are keeping an eye on Rice, Arsenal is the most active. British media ‘Guardian’ reported that Rice is certain to leave West Ham this summer, and Arsenal is the most likely destination. The media argued that Rice expects a higher level of play, but he is convinced that West Ham’s management does not live up to it. 예스벳 토토
West Ham are down to 17th this season with 24 points. The appearance of 7th place last season is nowhere to be seen. You have to worry about relegation.
Arsenal wanted to sign Brighton’s Moises Caicedo in the January transfer window, but it fell through. Instead, he brought in veteran Jorginho. Arsenal still want Caicedo, but signing him along with Rice is unrealistic. It seems that Kaisedo will go ‘all-in’ to rice instead.
