Manchester United are keen on landing the signature of West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice this summer.



The England international has been tipped to leave the Hammers for the past few years, but nothing has materialised.

Chelsea attempted to pursue his signature last summer, but the £80m price tag put them off from lodging an approach.

His valuation has been enhanced after another fine campaign, where the Hammers finished sixth in the league standings.

According to The Mail, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a young midfielder in the ranks, and has his sights on landing Rice.

However, the Hammers are not looking at the prospect of offloading their graduate, who has three years left on his contract.

They also have the option to extend his stay for another 12 months, and only an offer of around £100m could test their resolve this summer.

Aside from a midfielder, Solskjaer is keen on signing a wide forward and central defender for United during the summer transfer window.
