- West Ham turned down City’s opening £90m bid
- Bidding war could yet take price tag up to £110m
Arsenal have responded to Manchester City’s interest in Declan Rice by submitting a bid worth £105m for the West Ham midfielder.
However the bid is yet to be accepted by West Ham, even though it would set a record for a British player. They are unhappy with the payment structure proposed and, while they have not rejected the offer, talks between the clubs are ongoing.
