Arsenal are said to be leading the race to land midfielder Declan Rice as the English international favors a move to the Gunners.

According to recent reports, West Ham United captain Declan Rice may be considering a move to Arsenal over a return to his boyhood club, Chelsea.

The defensive midfielder, an England international, is said to be looking to test himself in the Champions League and at 24 years old, is looking to make a big move as he continues to develop his career.

Despite previous speculation that he may return to Stamford Bridge, it appears that Arsenal, under the management of Mikel Arteta, may have piqued his interest.

The Gunners are said to be willing to pay a transfer fee of around £80 million for Rice, whose contract with West Ham expires in 2024. Manchester United and Manchester City are also said to be interested in signing him.

West Ham currently sit 15th in the league with just 1 point off the relegation table and Declan Rice will be looking to help the team avoid relegation this season.
