‘This would make my year’ – These West Ham fans delighted by possible Declan Rice replacement

Posted by

Though West Ham might not care to admit it, the likelihood of Declan Rice moving to a bigger club next season is high.

Particularly if the England international continues his current high level of form for the east Londoners.

At a potential transfer fee of between £80m-£100m – or even more according to David Moyes per Sky Sports – he won’t come cheap.

It appears that the Hammers are already making moves to find his replacement. A sensible move should Rice go because the club certainly don’t want to be left in the lurch next summer.

Football Insider note that a £90m bid will ensure any interested parties acquire Rice, with West Ham looking to nab Juventus’ highly-rated Weston McKennie in return.

McKennie has international pedigree despite his young age, though he’s also had a number of disciplinary problems which isn’t something that would appeal to his potential new employers.

That said, despite the prospect of losing Rice, some of the West Ham faithful are delighted with the links to McKennie.
