Hammers have eyes on perfect Rice replacement

West Ham United are understood to consider Moises Caicedo as the ideal player to replace Declan Rice, who is constantly speculated with an exit.

But before any deal is done anywhere the Hammers are sticking by their £100 million plus price tag on the Hammers skipper.

There can now be no doubt now that Declan is on his way this summer but the club is hoping  that at least two or three clubs will enter the fray in order to set up the auction which will hike his price.

Chelsea remain keen but ironically they too are keen on Caidedo and will have a decision to make who they go for of the two given that the Brighton midfielder will be available at around £60 million.

Brighton could be willing to part ways with their talismanic midfielder, providing they bank that sort of figure just two years after he joined the club

Liverpool are also interested in a player who has been described as “being  excellent from a technical perspective, comfortable in tight spaces and bursting forward with the ball with ease.”
