West Ham reject second Arsenal bid for Rice

West Ham United have rejected a second bid from Arsenal for their captain Declan Rice.

It is understood the Gunners’ latest offer for the 24-year-old England midfielder could have been worth as much as £90m in total to the Hammers.

However, Arsenal were proposing the initial fee for Rice to be £75m, spread over four payments.

West Ham rejected Arsenal’s opening bid last week and want a larger fee and a shorter payment plan to the deal.

He will join Karim Benzema at Al-Ittihad after his fellow Frenchman left Real Madrid and agreed a three-year deal with them this month.
