Declan Rice is ‘certain’ to leave West Ham this summer with one club already in advanced talks
Rice has been expected to leave West Ham for a number of seasons
Declan Rice is expected to leave West Ham United at the end of the season.
Rice has been touted with a move away from the London Stadium for the best part of two years but has remained loyal to the club however with the Hammers embroiled in a relegation battle, finally looks set to depart.
The midfielder won’t be short of interest, with some of England’s biggest clubs wanting to secure his services but he will come at a cost, with West Ham wanting in the region of £100m.
TalkSPORT have claimed that Arsenal are one of those and that they are currently at the front of the queue to win his signature, with the England international reportedly excited about the prospect of moving to the Emirates Stadium.
Newcastle are another one of the clubs who may look to make a move but they are aware that they will face stiff competition and have played down previous media reports claiming that they would be the most likely to sign him.
Others such as Chelsea and Manchester City have also shown previous interest, but they are more likely to try and pursue other targets ahead of the 24-year-old.
West Ham are back in Europa Conference League action on Thursday as they take on Belgian side Gent in the second leg of the quarter finals where Rice is expected to captain the Hammers once again.
