‘Arsenal Can Have Him’ ‘He Will Never Join Them’ Chelsea Fans React As Reports Claim The Gunners Are Favourites To Sign 75M Midfielder

Arsenal have leapfrogged Chelsea to become favourites to sign West Ham captain Declan Rice next summer, according to multiple reports.

The England international has been a long-term target for the Blues but it appears as though Graham Potter’s side have cooled their interest in the player.

There has been a mixed reaction to the news on Twitter. Some fans are happy for Rice to join the Gunners while others feel that Chelsea will still beat their rivals to the midfielder’s signature:

It is an interesting development, especially considering the Blues have only recently hijacked Arsenal’s attempts to sign Mykhailo Mudryk.

Whether the reverse will happen with Rice, we shall have to wait and see, but a lot can happen between now and the summer when the transfer is likely to take place.

The 23-year-old is expected to cost at least Β£75m, with some reports indicating that West Ham may want in excess of Β£100m, so it may come down to who is prepared to stump up the cash.
