Arsenal reportedly agree personal terms with Declan Rice
According to FootballTransfers.com, Declan Rice has already agreed personal terms with Arsenal and all that remains is for the Gunners to agree a fee with West Ham for the defensive midfielder. Arsenal are hopeful that they will beat Newcastle, Man Utd and Chelsea to the signing of the England international, as a long-term replacement for Granit Xhaka.
Declan Rice is a talented midfielder who currently plays for West Ham United. Born on January 14, 1999, in London, Rice began his football career at a young age and quickly caught the attention of the West Ham academy. Known for his versatility, Rice has primarily excelled as a defensive midfielder but has also showcased his abilities as a center-back. His exceptional technical skills, tactical awareness, and strong tackling make him a reliable presence in the heart of West Ham's midfield.
Since making his first-team debut for West Ham in 2017, Rice has steadily established himself as one of the club's most promising young talents. His performances on the pitch have earned him recognition and praise from fans and experts alike. With each passing season, Rice's maturity and composure have grown, and he has become a key figure in West Ham's midfield. Furthermore, his impressive performances have not gone unnoticed on the international stage. Rice has represented the England national team, showcasing his abilities at major tournaments and further solidifying his reputation as a top-class midfielder. As his career continues to flourish, many predict that Rice has the potential to become one of the finest midfielders of his generation.
It is understood that West Ham are looking for a fee of around £90 million to be persuaded to sell their captain, and Arsenal are ready to barter for the player, offering multiple players in exchange. Reiss Nelson could be used as a makeweight as part of a transfer deal, or even Emile Smith-Rowe on loan for the season.
