West Ham star provides update on his future amidst continued transfer speculation

TIRANA, ALBANIA – MARCH 28: Harry Kane of England celebrates with team mates (L – R) Declan Rice, John Stones and Mason Mount after scoring their side’s first goal during the FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar qualifying match between Albania and England at Arena Kombëtare on March 28, 2021 in Tirana, Albania.

The former Cobham academy player turned West Ham ace is now a key part of the inner workings for England under Gareth Southgate while being absolutely vital to David Moyes’ West Ham revolution, but remains under the looking glass as bigger clubs continue to manoeuver for his services.

Despite interest from elsewhere, Rice remains firmly locked-in at the London Stadium regardless of outside influences, according to Standard Sport’s Jack Rosser;

“Everyone knows how I feel about West Ham, how I feel about playing for the manager. You can see from my performances, nothing is up and nothing is concerning me. My only objective at the moment is going out and playing for the club.”

Hammers line up potential replacement

Despite his firm stance that his sole focus remains West Ham at current, there is no doubt that top clubs will come back in for Rice either in January or next summer.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United remain heavily linked with interest in the England international, who the Hammers are apparently willing to let go if a fee of around £90million is received for his services.

As such, West Ham have opened talks with US international midfielder Weston McKennie according to Football Insider, as a direct replacement for Rice, who has continued to reject fresh contract offers that have been tabled by the club.

Despite a superb inaugural season with Juventus last season under Andrea Pirlo, McKennie is no longer viewed as a valued asset under new boss Massimiliano Allegri, and was already subject to transfer rumors over the summer in a future that seems to revolve less and less around a stay in Serie A.
