Arsenal are hijacking Newcastle’s main target

Premier League

Despite the remote chance of an audacious bid from Newcastle, talkSPORT understands that Declan Rice will likely end up at Arsenal.

According to sources, Newcastle is considering Rice if they decide to abandon their cautious strategy and make significant summer purchases.

With West Ham holding out for a transfer fee of up to £100 million, the England international will almost certainly leave the club at the end of the current campaign.

Chelsea, his former club who released him when he was 14 years old, is also keeping an eye on the matter.

However, Arsenal’s interest is further along, and Rice is psyched about the idea of moving to north London.

For fear of breaking Financial Fair Play regulations, Newcastle’s Saudi owners have refrained from making excessive purchases.

Even if they make the Champions League, there is no assurance things will alter.

In the sake of maintaining peace in the locker room, Magpies boss Eddie Howe is also eager to adhere to a rigid pay policy.

Rice, who has earned 41 England caps to date, joined West Ham’s academy in 2014 after being released by Chelsea.

He made his debut for the Hammers’ first team in May 2017 at the age of 18, and he is now a crucial member of the squad.

After the 2-2 draw with West Ham at the London Stadium, the 24-year-old was seen requesting Gunners skipper Odegaard to autograph a replica Arsenal shirt for him.

The England star has been linked with a number of Premier League heavyweights recently, including Manchester City, Manchester United, and Liverpool.

However, Rice’s most likely summer destination is London, and Arsenal are the favorites to sign him.

In February 2022, Rice said: “I have always said it, I don’t want to have a career where I haven’t won anything. He has previously expressed his desire to reach great success.

“When I was a young child, I watched all these elite athletes win trophies, the Premier League, and the Champions League.

I want to win the Premier League, I want to hold up the trophy, I want to win the Champions League, I want to win the FA Cups, I want to win the League Cups, even with England, I want to win it all.

“Why are you playing football if you don’t have that ambition? Winning such trophies is one of the highlights of your life.

“I’ve wondered previously what it would be like to lift the trophy back in those days. The day of it and the evening afterwards. I definitely want to experience becoming the best I can be and earning awards.
