West Ham United rejected a second offer from Arsenal for captain Declan Rice.
It is understood that Arsenal’s latest bid for the 24-year-old England midfielder could have been worth £90m in total for the Hammers.
However, Arsenal proposed the initial fee for Rice to be £75 million, spread over four installments.
West Ham refused Arsenal’s opening show Last week and you want a bigger fee and a different deal structure.
said club chairman David Sullivan He is “99%” sure. Rice, who led the Hammers to victory in the Europa League earlier this month, will leave West Ham this summer.
Rice played 245 matches and scored 15 goals for West Ham, having made her debut in the 2016-2017 season after entering the academy.
He has 41 caps for England, playing in all five of their World Cup matches last winter.
Rice has one year left on his contract, though the Hammers have the option to extend that until the summer of 2025, leaving them in a strong position to negotiate a significant transfer fee.
