Declan Rice would rather go to Arsenal than Chelsea



Declan Rice would rather go to Arsenal than Chelsea

Chelsea have long been considered the most promising candidates for Declan Rice’s transfer. But now Arsenal probably sparks the blues in between.

West Ham midfielder Declan Rice appears keen on joining Arsenal next summer. Again Guardians reports, he is particularly excited about the prospect of working with Gunners coach Mikel Arteta. Chelsea FC, which in the past was considered the favorite to sign the World Cup participant, would then go away empty-handed.

According to the report, Rice is currently Arsenal’s top transfer target and they are increasingly optimistic that a deal will be struck.

The 24-year-old England international is under contract with West Ham until 2024, but a move next summer is almost certain. Saying goodbye to the Hammers has been a recurring theme in recent years, mostly with Chelsea as the top candidate. Rice once played for the Blues when he was young but had to leave the club at 14 to join West Ham.

In addition to Arsenal and Chelsea, the Guardians also Manchester United as an interested party.

Most recently, the Blues had won a transfer duel with Arsenal: Mykhaylo Mudryk already seemed on the way to becoming the current leader in the Premier League, but then went to Chelsea for 100 million euros.

West Ham would be loud Guardians would like to demand around 114 million euros for Rice, but should give in in view of the London-born contract expiring in 2024. For example, a transfer fee of the equivalent of a good 90 million euros should be considered realistic for the Hammers.
