West Ham’s international midfielder will become the most expensive English player in the history of the Premier League with the transfer of 105 million pounds, breaking Jack Grealish’s record.

According to the Express, Declan Rice will move to Arsenal for 105 million pounds to set a record in English football for English players. Previously, Jack Grealish’s £100 million transfer from Aston Villa to Manchester City was the most expensive transfer in the Premier League for an English player.

West Ham Club announced Declan Rice’s departure on its website. 24-year-old Rice will continue his football in Arsenal; Although West Ham have not announced which club Rice will join, sources from Sky Sports have announced that he will soon wear the Arsenal shirt.
This purchase will also be the most expensive purchase in Arsenal’s history. Before this, the purchase of Nicolas Pepe for 72 million pounds from Lille in 2019 was the most expensive purchase of the London Gunners. The most money an English club has ever spent on a player was £106.8m paid by Chelsea for Enso Fernandez from Benfica last January.

Rice has spent his entire football career at West Ham. He played 50 games in all competitions last season and scored five goals. He helped West Ham win the Conference League.

Declan Rice has recorded 43 national matches and three national goals for England. Together with England, he has also won the runner-up of Euro 2020 and the Bronze League of Nations 2019.

Chelsea’s German star Kai Havertz was Arsenal’s first signing in the summer transfer window. This midfielder left Chelsea for 65 million pounds after three seasons at Stamford Bridge. Havertz will wear number 29 like Chelsea.

Arsenal’s second purchase was from the Netherlands. Ajax right-back Urion Timber has joined Arsenal in a five-year contract worth 45 million euros and is set to wear the team’s number 12 shirt, and now Declan Rice will be Arsenal’s third and last major signing for the new season.
