West Ham United’s Declan Rice, 24, is about to get some serious attention.

“Chelsea’s £160 million transfer fee for Enzo Fernandes from Benfica is the current Premier League record. West Ham will be looking to surpass that.”

Asked if Rice had played his last game for West Ham, Sullivan said, “He should. We promised him he could go. Rice wants to go,” he said.

“We couldn’t ask for more from a player who has given more to us this season,” he said, adding, “When the time comes, he has to go and we have to find a replacement.”

“It’s not something we want to do. We offered Rice a £200,000-a-week contract 18 months ago and it was rejected.” “He wants to leave. We can’t keep a player who doesn’t want to stay.”

Rice, an Englishman, plays as a defensive midfielder for West Ham. He has been with the Hammers since 2014, when he joined the youth team.

He started out as a central defender in his early days as a professional, but has since moved into attack. His coordination and passing are among the best in the league.

In total, he has five goals and four assists in 50 games this season. In the Premier League, he has started 36 out of 37 games. He is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world 메이저사이트.

He has expressed on several occasions that he would like to leave the club to pursue bigger things. “I want to play in the Champions League, I’ve been saying that for the last two or three years,” Rice said of his desire to leave.

Asked if there have been any offers for Rice, Sullivan said, “No, not really. But I’m sure there will be offers. There are three or four clubs that have shown interest, but we haven’t made an offer because we’re not out of the season yet.” According to reports, Manchester United and Bayern Munich, along with Arsenal, are currently actively pursuing the player.
