West Ham in the dark over second bid

West Ham have yet to receive a second bid for Declan Rice from Arsenal and are in the dark whether one is on the way as claimed.

Daily Mirror Chief Football John Cross claimed a second bid worth £90M will be lodged today by the North London club but a club source speaking to Claret and Hugh said that is news to them,

The C&H source explained: “There has been no second offer from Arsenal, nor have we heard through intermediaries that one is on the way. We are in no rush to sell Declan – these are early days in the window.”

Sources close to the Rice camp claim that Declan has his heart set on a move to Arsenal and could turn down personal with other clubs.

However it is in West Ham’s interest to encourage competition to sell to the highest bidder and offers from Chelsea and Manchester City are expected.

West Ham are expected to reject a second bid when it arrives, the Daily Mail claims the Gunners’ new deal is believed to be worth £75million in guaranteed cash with an extra £15m in add ons.

The first rejected offer was said to be £80m including add-ons which included what has been described a ridiculous and insulting payment structure
