Liverpool now interested in £100M deal after summer move confirmed
West Ham chairman David Sullivan has confirmed captain Declan Rice will be sold this summer, and now LIVERPOOL have joined the race for the player
Liverpool had one of their worst seasons in recent memory and finished outside the Champions League places – and outside of the top four – they were awful.
And that has led to rumours that a number of players will get signed by new boss Jurgen Klopp this summer.
Over the past few seasons – Declan Rice has developed into one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and a man that could go on to become one of the best in the world.
The England midfielder became only the third Hammers skipper to lift a trophy, after victory over Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League.
He is a player that Chelsea and Arsenal are really interested in acquiring – but there is now claims on the SUn which have claimed that LIVERPOOL are interested in a possible deal – claiming he could be the idea partner for new signing Alexis Mac Allister
Sullivan admitted a gentleman’s agreement means they will allow a player who still has two years remaining on his contract to leave.
Asked whether lifting the trophy in Prague was Rice’s last action as a West Ham player, Sullivan told talkSPORT: “I think it has to be. We promised him he could go.
“He set his heart on going and in due course he has to get on and we have to get a replacement.
“It is not something we wanted to happen. We offered him £200,000 a week 18 months ago and he turned it down. You can’t keep a player who doesn’t want to be there.
“I think the offers will start to come today.
‘Three or four clubs have shown interest but out of respect to West Ham, while we’re still playing, you don’t make offers for players.”
