Rice will complete his Arsenal transfer today, as the Gunners finally conclude a deal for up to £120 million.
Declan Rice is likely to complete his £120 million transfer to Arsenal on Friday, as the Gunners finalize the agreement.
The England international will join Arsenal for a sum of up to £120 million ($157 million) plus add-ons. West Ham had grown increasingly irritated with the delay in concluding the procedures. But the story is now coming to a close.
Arsenal’s attorneys took their time drafting the contract, which caused the delay. Following the agreement on the transfer price, the sale is ready to proceed. The Hammers are now keen to finish the paperwork.
Rice has already passed his physical, and despite being on vacation in Portugal, he has been working hard on his fitness in order to be in peak condition when he meets his new colleagues at the Emirates.
Rice will probably go to the US with the rest of the Arsenal team for preseason training if the trade will go official today.
