Arsenal agree deal for West Ham midfielder Rice

Aleksander Ceferin gives the winning medal to captain Declan Rice of West Ham United the end of the UEFA Conference League final match between ACF Fiorentina and West Ham United at Eden Arena, Prague, Czech Republic on June 7, 2023.

Arsenal have reached an agreement to sign West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice in a deal worth over 100 million pounds ($127 million), British media reported.

The 24-year-old England international had received permission to undergo a medical this week ahead of his move across London, the Guardian said.

The report added that West Ham had accepted an offer worth 100 million pounds plus 5 million in add-ons, with the guaranteed portion of the fee expected to be paid in three instalments over two years.

West Ham chairman David Sullivan said last month that a gentleman’s agreement meant Rice can leave despite a year remaining on his contract with the option to extend it by a further 12 months.

Rice joined West Ham’s academy from Chelsea as a teenager and has been a mainstay since his breakthrough campaign in 2017-18. He has played over 200 games for the club and helped them win the Europa Conference League last month.
