ALL HANDS ON DEC Declan Rice to have Arsenal medical TODAY as £105m club and British record transfer

DECLAN RICE will reportedly undergo his Arsenal medical TODAY ahead of a club-record £105million move.

The midfielder, 24, is expected to finalise his switch from West Ham and become the most expensive British player in Prem history.

They then agreed a payment structure with West Ham that will see the amount paid off by the summer of 2025.

Personal terms had already been agreed verbally weeks ago, and a medical is now booked in, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Arsenal originally wanted to stagger a section of the payment across a longer period while West Ham demanded the full amount within 18 months.

These minor payment issues had never been seen as derailing, but the Hammers were insistent on digging their heels in to get the deal they wanted.

Rice’s transfer will also see the Gunners smash the £72m they paid Lille for Nicolas Pepe back in 2019.

Both Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta and Rice were desperate to get this over the line as quickly as possible.

And with the departure of Granit Xhaka, Rice has been tipped to replace the Swiss midfielder and take up a new role.
