Arsenal are sticking to their guns in the transfer market as they bid to strike an agreement with West Ham for Declan Rice.

The Hammers talisman, 24, has emerged as Mikel Arteta 's top summer transfer target and is set to be the subject of a structured 92million proposal from the Gunners in the coming days now that West Ham's season is over.

However, it remains to be seen if Arsenal's offer will meet the demands of West Ham chairman David Sullivan, who is believed to value Rice at more than 100m. Talks over a deal are advancing, though, and the Hammers have already identified several targets to bolster their squad with the funds they would bank from selling Rice.

If the Hammers get their way, Rice will leave for a record British transfer fee which would eclipse the 105m sum that Chelsea shelled out on Enzo Fernandez back in January. And although Arteta has been handed a significant transfer budget after qualifying for next season's Champions League, it remains to be seen if the Arsenal boss is willing to break the bank in order to acquire his No.1 summer target.
