According to a report from ExWHUemployee, West Ham has rejected Arsenal’s initial bid for their midfield star Declan Rice, writes the WHZ. The report states that the opening offer for the 24-year-old amounted to £80 million, with an additional £10 million in add-ons. However, the offer falls short of West Ham’s valuation for their captain, and as a result, it has been declined.
Both Arsenal and West Ham, being Premier League powerhouses, are well aware of the current trends in deal negotiations. Arsenal’s initial lowball offer to West Ham is a predictable move, and the Hammers are likely prepared for such tactics. West Ham is in no hurry to part ways with their prized asset and will persist in this approach until they receive a satisfactory valuation that aligns with their plans.

“The offer is thought to be £80million with £10million add ons. This offer is below what West Ham think is acceptable and has been turned down.
“It is usual practice for a club to start their offers below the amount they are prepared to go up to.”
