Arsenal has plans to sign Declan Rice from West Ham in the summer and a new report claims the Gunners could get their man.
The Hammers have previously been clear that the ex-Chelsea trainee is not for sale but have been unable to agree on terms of a new deal with the midfielder so far.

A report on Football Insider reveals the Irons will be open to allowing the midfielder to leave when this season ends, opening the door for Arsenal to add him to their squad.
