One of the best young talents to emerge in the Premier League this season is starting to attract some transfer speculation.
Since bursting onto the scene, the 20-year-old West Ham midfielder, Declan Rice, has become an instant hit with the West Ham support whilst also, at such a young age, becoming one of the first names that the West Ham manager, Manuel Pellegrini puts on the team-sheet.
However, with such success comes the inevitable transfer speculation relating to other clubs looking to acquire the player.
Today, the news source, the Express, is reporting that two Premier League clubs are looking at making bids, said to be of the magnitude of £35 million, to try and sign the player.
Liverpool are one whilst the other is named as Tottenham Hotspur.
However, it remains to be seen if Rice is indeed looking for a move or whether he’s happy to wait until he receives a contract offer from West Ham United he finds acceptable.
But, although Jurgen Klopp has insisted Liverpool will not be spending big in the summer,
adding such a talented youngster as Declan Rice to the squad would, we feel, be a good move.
