Arsenal are reportedly on the verge of completing a major transfer coup as they work to secure the signing of Declan Rice from West Ham United. According to renowned transfer news expert Fabrizio Romano, the deal is ‘more than close’ and could be finalized within the next 24-48 hours.

The 24-year-old midfielder had an impressive season, scoring four goals and providing two assists for West Ham. His contributions were crucial in helping the team avoid relegation and secure a spot in the UEFA Europa Conference League. Rice’s performances did not go unnoticed, with Manchester City also expressing interest in acquiring his services.

However, it appears that Arsenal has emerged as the frontrunners in the race for Rice’s signature. The Gunners are said to have tabled a staggering £105 million bid for the England international, a figure that could be difficult for West Ham to turn down. It is believed that Rice himself is ready to ask his current club to accept Arsenal’s offer, indicating his desire to make the move to the Emirates Stadium.

For Arsenal, securing Rice’s signature would be a significant boost ahead of the upcoming season. The club was involved in a fierce title race with Manchester City throughout the 2022/23 Premier League campaign but ultimately fell short. A defeat against Nottingham Forest in their 37th game week saw them lose out on lifting the trophy, with City claiming their third consecutive league title.

Despite finishing as runners-up, Arsenal can take pride in their performance this season. They led the league table for an impressive 10 months and amassed a commendable total of 84 points. However, it was not enough to dethrone Manchester City, who finished with 89 points and secured their status as this year’s Premier League champions.

With ambitions of reclaiming their former glory and challenging for top honors once again, Arsenal sees Declan Rice as a key addition to their squad. The versatile midfielder’s ability to contribute both defensively and offensively would provide a significant boost to the Gunners’ midfield options. His presence would undoubtedly strengthen their chances of mounting a serious title challenge in the upcoming season.

As negotiations between Arsenal and West Ham continue, fans eagerly await the official announcement of Rice’s transfer. If all goes according to plan, it won’t be long before the talented midfielder dons the famous red and white jersey of Arsenal, ready to make his mark on one of England’s most historic clubs.
