West Ham won't lower Declan Rice price tag

West Ham United are firm on their price tag for Declan Rice amid interest from Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The England international has spent his entire career with the Hammers, but he is now eyeing a bigger challenge elsewhere.

Rice has three years on his contract with an option for 12 months. He has made it clear that he won't sign an improved deal.

He has his sights on leaving the London club next summer, but claims that they are set to demand a hefty fee.

City and United have identified Rice as a priority target for next summer while the Blues are long-term admirers of the 22-year-old.

The Hammers are aware of the speculated interest. They are determined to not lose Rice for anything less than £100 million.

The club believe their valuation is far, considering Jack Grealish's switch to Manchester City from Aston Villa for the same figure.

Rice is four years younger than Grealish. The Hammers feel that he is worth the figure with the vast room to develop his skills.
