Arsenal are expected to announce the arrival of West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice in the next 24 hours.

The England international has been a long-term target for the Gunners, and an agreement is already in place to sign him from the Hammers.

A deal worth £100m plus add-ons was agreed at the beginning of the month, but the move has been delayed due to paperwork verification.

Arsenal's lawyers have been going through the necessary documents, and they are expected to send them to the Hammers in the coming hours.

It is anticipated that the paperwork will be signed on both sides tomorrow such that Rice is formally registered and announced as an Arsenal player.

Arsenal are keen to have Rice in their travelling squad to the United States on Sunday. The midfielder has already undergone his medical tests.

Following Rice's arrival, Arsenal are likely to pursue another midfielder and a right winger based on the funds recouped from player departures.
