West Ham could now get more than £105m for Declan Rice from Arsenal claims board confidant as star returns from holiday
It is now only a matter of time until that issue is ironed out and the deal is sealed between West Ham and Arsenal.
But West Ham could now get more than the £105m for Rice from Arsenal claims a source close to the Hammers board as star returns from holiday.
Sean Whetstone has close links to West Ham vice-chair Karren Brady and the Hammers hierarchy.
And in an update, he claims there is now the potential for West Ham to actually receive more than the reported £105m from Arsenal as the two clubs work on a resolution.
Rice back from holiday and Hammers could end up with more than they bargained for
Whetstone also claims there is not yet a full agreement on the details regarding the add-ons.
“Declan Rice payment structure deal still not agreed tonight (Friday) although gradually moving towards resolution,” Whetstone said.
“Also one or two minor issues to sort out that West Ham are fighting Arsenal on in addition to payment schedule.
“Potential for Hammers to get more than £105m eventually. Reaching agreement tomorrow is unlikely, Sunday at the earliest I hear or Monday should be the latest to finally get it over the line.
“The player flies home from his family holiday Saturday.”
As reported on Hammers News yesterday, Rice’s wages at Arsenal are reported to be the same as he turned down at West Ham.
A top source inside West Ham had insisted Rice was ‘determined’ to join Arsenal.
And it seems the Hammers hero is close to getting his wish as he returns to London from a break away.
