Report – Rice has already told Arteta which club he will join this summer

The prospect of Arsenal signing West Ham midfielder Declan Rice is becoming increasingly likely, as the player has reportedly expressed his desire to join the Gunners to both West Ham and Mikel Arteta.

While Arsenal has been considered the front-runner in the race for Rice’s signature in recent weeks, they face competition from other clubs such as Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

Rice now faces the decision of choosing where he wants to play in the upcoming season, and according to a report from Football Insider, he has indicated his preference to join Arsenal. He has communicated this desire to both Arsenal and West Ham.

This development provides a significant boost to Arsenal’s pursuit of Rice, and the club will now need to negotiate an agreement with West Ham in order to secure the player’s services.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Rice has chosen well and now we need to play our part by finding an agreement with West Ham over his signature.

A move for Rice will make us much stronger than we are now and we need that strength ahead of the next campaign after we secured a return to the Champions League.

But he alone will not help us win a trophy, so every other player at the club must return in top shape.

  1. Can we just get this done? Yes – we don’t want to overspend, but also I don’t want to go through a long running saga again, and end up wasting our time – we either decide we want him, or we don’t and look for someone else. No other club seems to have these sagas.

  2. Sign him and caciedo then we have a chance at going for the title. Anything less will be a signal top four is enough. Rice is good and will enhance the squad however, we dropped off hard at the business end. Big investment is needed to close the gap.

  3. No time to waste. We should get Rice and Caciedo and we are good to go. Arsenal Must make the difference this season.

  4. Westham will accept a bid of £67 million plus add-ons or risk losing him on a free next year. Cicero has a release clause added to his contract of £75 million, which was why it was strange that he agreed an extension last winter. All this talk of £100 million here £100 million there is just media hype. Arsenal have already made both deals unofficially for £67 million Rice and £75 million Caicedo. both deals will be made public during the second half of the month of june following a medical.

    1. West Ham knows offers will be coming and will try and sting this transfer along as much as a possible. If we don’t put in a good offer things may go south. We remember the Suarez fumble some years back. Hope we’ve learnt and will get our man. This team is close to the finished product and we need to close the loopholes.

  5. The priority should have been Caicedo first. Younger, more versatile, better. English players are always too expensive.However Rice is still an excellent player to have in the team.
    If we could have both, then we fight for the title.

  6. Everything seems to be clear the player wants the move so let Edu speed up and we a void situation like for mudrik

  7. With the fact that Rice is willing to join us and arsenal more interested, i think things are not bad, just to hasten the business and focus ahead not stagnating on one deal while other areas also need to be sort.

    1. The fee of 120M asked by WH is a big problem and according to several reports,we are not willing to pay that much but around 90/95M.WH would also take one player plus cash but which one.this one is going to drag on or we may walk away from the whole thing.

    2. Figures of £100m or more being quoted are excessive. There are any number of transfer fees that are way too high and this one is right up there. For a player who has yet to really prove himself at the highest levels these kinds of transfer fees are unreasonable and bordering on insanity.
