Declan Rice will reportedly complete his £120 million Arsenal move on Friday as the Gunners finally get the deal over the line.
According to Sky Sports, the England international is all set to seal his move to the Emirates which would cost Arsenal up to £120 million ($157m) including possible add-ons. West Ham were growing increasingly impatient with the delay in completing the proceedings but the saga is all set to finally end.
The delay occurred as Arsenal’s lawyers took their time to approve the final wording of the contract. The Hammers were keen to sign the paperwork after agreeing on a transfer fee last month, but the transfer saga has rolled on for several weeks. With the new season edging closer, the highly-anticipated move is finally set to be completed.Rice has already passed his medical and despite holidaying in Portugal, he has been working hard on his fitness as he looks to be in the best possible shape when he joins his new teammates at the Emirates.If the move is made official on Friday, Rice will likely fly to the United States with the rest of the Arsenal squad for their pre-season commitments, which include matches against Manchester United, Barcelona, and an MLS All-Star team.
