He has also said that the Gunners are gaining small steps towards winning his signature. A report has also claimed that the midfielder has rejected a potential move to Real Madrid in the next summer transfer window. Hence, it looks like the West Ham midfielder will continue his future in England. However, it will not be with the Hammers.
Transfer expert on Arsenal interest further said, “Arsenal’s midfield priority will be Declan Rice and West Ham are resigned to losing him,” .“David Moyes, as you’d expect, has been quick to argue if Rice leaves it should be for a British-record transfer fee. “But suitors are hoping for a fee of £70-80m. This is ultimately because Rice’s contract expires in summer 2024. However, he has also said that Declan Rice is also going to receive big financial proposals from other top Premier League clubs.
CHELSEA, MANCHESTER UNITED AND NEWCASTLE UNITED ARE ALSO IN THE RACE FOR HIS SIGNATURE
Transfer expert Ben Jacobs has further said that Arsenal are not only one trying hard to secure his signature.

Hence, the Hammers would like to make the most out of his potential sale.
Transfer expert Ben Jacobs on Declan Rice further said, “Chelsea’s big-spending could inflate the market and thus Rice’s price. “You can understand why selling clubs, especially for top-tier central midfielders, will point to Enzo Fernandez’s £107m fee and ask for something similar. “I still think Rice will go for cheaper than that, but how much so will depend on whether West Ham get a bit of a bidding war. “Chelsea also really want Rice. Manchester United and Newcastle United can’t be ruled out either, although I understand Rice’s preference is to stay in London. Hence, Arsenal are in for tough negotiations for the signature of Declan Rice.
