Manchester United could be set to make a move for West Ham defensive midfielder Declan Rice, according to the Express.
Rice has established himself as one of the most highly-rated young defensive midfielders during his time with the Hammers. He is so highly-rated that the Hammers have entrusted him with the club captaincy in the absence of Mark Noble.
Since bursting onto the Hammers first-team scene in 2015, Rice has already gone on to make more than 100 Premier League appearances. He won himself a spot in the England national team in 2019, and he has an excellent change of being a regular for the Three Lions at the European Championships next summer.
The report did add that Rice would prefer a move to Chelsea if he ends up leaving the Hammers. The player is a product of the Blues youth academy and was released by them in 2014.
After being released by his boyhood club, he went on to sign for West Ham. It took him just a year with the West Ham academy before he broke into the first-team picture.
Rice has established himself as a key player for West Ham but will need to eventually leave the London Stadium in order to take his career to the next level.
