£100M Arsenal bid imminent


A £100m plus bid from Arsenal for West Ham captain Declan Rice is believed to be imminent. Whilst the club have received no official interest from the North Londoners an offer is expected this week.

Rice’s representatives led by his father are thought to have already agreed terms with Mikel Arteta’s side. Arsenal may not have made official contact with West Ham yet, but it is believed the deal will happen quickly.

£100M Arsenal bid imminent for Declan Rice

Rice informed the club of his decision to leave and stated that Arsenal was his preferred destination. As a result both Bayern Munich and Manchester United have decided to look elsewhere to bolster their squads.

An early resolution would be best for all concerned. With the summer transfer window upon us, a £100m Arsenal bid is expected imminently.

The deal is understood to be a guaranteed £90 million with £15-20 performance based add-ons. The final figure is below what the Hammers have demanded but does involve a significant initial sum.

Declan’s insistence on joining only Arsenal has has led to less competition, and a slightly lower fee, Given that circumstance I think West Ham will do well to get close to a figure which could still be a British transfer record.

If the Declan Rice transfer is concluded as early as next week it will allow the Hammers to crack on with their own purchases.

Fulham’s Joao Palhinha has been mentioned as a potential Rice replacement but his £50m price seems excessive.

  • Hammeroo says:

    If Declan is saying he only wants to be a Gooner and his father agent is trying to drive the price up by talking to other clubs then it would seem that the pair don’t know what they’re doing. I’m sure David Sullivan will not allow Rice to leave for below West Ham’s valuation so if Arsenal or any other club won’t meet it then he must stay!

    • They aren’t. Talks go on for months and clubs come in when they think the timr is right rather than when the agent hopes wjicj is WHY they tip off the media
