West Ham sets a date to finalise Rice transfer talks with Arsenal

West Ham is reportedly aiming to complete the transfer of Declan Rice to Arsenal by Monday, as negotiations between the two clubs for the midfielder continue.

While the Hammers have agreed to sell Rice to the Gunners for a record fee, they have yet to reach a consensus on the payment structure.

However, there is a mutual willingness from both clubs to find a resolution to this issue. According to The Sun, West Ham is eager to finalise the deal by Monday.

It may necessitate compromises from both sides, as they are currently some distance apart in their respective positions.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have already secured an agreement in principle to sign Rice, which means the most important hurdle is out of the way.

We now expect him to undergo his medical in the next few days and we can get our hands on our man as soon as we can.

Rice must be eager to get all these bottlenecks out of the way so that he can sample the Arsenal shirt.

The Monday deadline is a very good time for everyone involved so that we can sort out this deal and move on to the next one and see if we can finish our business before the pre-season begins.

  1. Its something to do with part of the payments being included in WHU’s new financial year accounting.

    I do NOT see it as a major issue at all and believe he will be announced as our player on Tuesday next, or possibly at the latest, Wednesday.

  2. July the first cut off from last years accounts for FFP so should see him signed by midweek aslong as we don’t keep messing West Ham about with the structure of payments ,personally hope this goes through now ,not that I think Rice is worth anywhere near that price but becaue we have spent over 2 weeks faffing around and I hoping him
    In a better team he can actually improve us .
    Let’s hope

  3. If they keep delaying this someone will come in for him.
    I am personally bored of hearing about Declan Rice. Get it over the line or don’t bother.
    Even Spurs managed to sign Maddison in a fraction of the time it has taken to get nowhere with West Ham and Declan Rice.
    And Man Utd will get Mason Mount and Liverpool will get Dominik Szoboszla and still the Rice saga will drag on.
    There is one speed with Arsenal sometimes..
