Declan Rice: Arsenal agree £105m deal to sign West Ham and England midfielder this summer
Arsenal's third bid of £105m will make Declan Rice the most expensive British transfer ever; Man City ended interest after having £90m bid rejected by West Ham; Rice led Irons to Europa Conference League title last season.
Arsenal have agreed a £105m deal to sign West Ham captain Declan Rice.
The transfer breaks down as an £100m initial fee plus £5m in performance related add-ons.

The offer smashes Arsenal's transfer record - the £72m they paid Lille for Nicolas Pepe in 2019.
