According to ESPN, West Ham is interested in doing business with Man City in the Declan Rice transfer.
Arsenal is the team most likely to recruit Declan Rice . This player has reason to be interested in the Gunners project when the team is changing drastically.
Since the beginning of the 2022/23 season, Rice has rejected many offers to extend his contract at West Ham. West Ham himself also admitted the 24-year-old player is likely to leave.
However, this club wants to receive a substantial amount of cash. The price that the sledgehammer wants is about 100 million pounds. This is really an obstacle for the Emirates Stadium team.
Accordingly, Arsenal’s offer worth around £90 million has been rejected. The Gunners are expected to return for a better price. However, they need to take more drastic action.
Most recently, ESPN confirmed West Ham are said to be interested in exploring a deal with Man City, which will see Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice switch places.
At that time, Man City can cost a not too large fee and can push Phillips away when this player has no place at Etihad.
On the West Ham side, they need a replacement for Rice, and consider Phillips as the most reasonable option.
