Arsenal have their eyes on West Ham United captain Declan Rice for the upcoming summer transfer window, with the club optimistic about a possible deal. According to reports, Arsenal have a budget of over £150 million that can be used from both club funds and sales.
The Gunners are looking to close the gap between them and league leaders Manchester City, who are currently one point ahead in the race for the title. With a game in hand and £150 million to spend, Arsenal will be looking to bolster their squad with quality additions like Declan Rice this summer.
The West Ham United midfielder has been a standout player for his club this season, contributing three goals and two assists in 30 Premier League appearances. Rice is known for his excellent ball-winning ability and his eye for finding gaps in the opposing team’s defence, which could help Arsenal fill their gap in midfield as they challenge for the title next season.
The London club have already made some big moves this summer, including a loan deal for Southampton forward Ings and a move for Norway U21 international Martin Odegaard. They will be hoping to build on this early success in the transfer window with the addition of Rice, who is expected to command a large fee due to his age and Premier League experience.
Arsenal are looking to further strengthen their squad ahead of the 2021/22 season and the addition of Rice would be a big boost for their title chances. With £150 million in the bank, Arsenal are ready to fight hard to land the highly-rated midfielder this summer.
