Reports that Manchester City made a bid for Declan Rice yesterday seem to have been premature with the Hammers still waiting for a formal approach.
6foot2 understand intermediaries approached the Hammers to say to expect a bid from the treble winners but that is yet to materialise as it stands at 8 am this morning.
A similar occurrence happened last week with Chelsea with intermediaries indicating a bid would follow but nothing transpired as yet.
Manchester United have yet to make a move too if reports are to be believed although there is some concern whether they can compete financially.
West Ham remain in the dark what amount and structure a Man City bid for Rice may take despite being widely reported in several media outlets.
One suggestion is the offer could include cash plus Kalvin Phillips, club insiders confirm Phillips is a player they admire but there is some concern over his injury record.
