Arsenal have Emergency board meeting to discuss accelerating the pursuit of Declan Rice

The Arsenal voard are being reported as having held an emergency meeting on Friday, where directors reported  the possibility of an accelerated pursuit of West Ham United’s captain, Declan Rice.

According to Arsenal Informer website the meeting revolved around the Englishman’s potential as the new face of the Gunners, with key figures seeing him as a critical  transfer window addition. Tim Lewis, Edu Gasper, and Vinai Venkatesham were among the personnel present during the discussion.

A key strategy explored during the meeting involved the payment structure of the £100 million fee demanded by West Ham for Rice. It was suggested that paying the substantial fee over a shorter time frame, in instalments over three years, could showcase Arsenal’s commitment and serious intent to meet West Ham’s requirements.

The urgency to increase the bid for the 24-year-old has been intensified by Manchester City’s interest in making a formal offer for Rice.

Despite the potential competition from the Premier League and Champions League holders, the London side remain confident of securing  the services of the highly sought-after player.

The question has to be asked ….If Arsenal really want Declan, why don`t they just pay the asking price?
