Transfer News: Declan Rice to make clear choice between Manchester United and Arsenal

Declan Rice is reportedly ready to reveal his preferred destination this summer as both Arsenal and Manchester United compete for his signature.

Despite his focus on West Ham's upcoming Europa League Conference final against Fiorentina, Rice is said to want to remain in London and commit his peak years to Arsenal. The Gunners are preparing a £90million bid for the England international, but this falls short of West Ham's valuation by at least £10m.

Manchester United are also keen to strengthen their midfield and are expected to submit a rival offer, prompting Rice to make it clear that he only has eyes for Arsenal, where he is seen as a replacement for Granit Xhaka.

Switzerland international is set to join Bayer Leverkusen, while Thomas Partey and Albert Sambi Lokonga's futures are uncertain. Partey has been linked with a move to Serie A, while Lokonga is a target for newly promoted Burnley. Vincent Kompany attended Arsenal's recent 3-0 home defeat by Brighton.

Ray Parlour fears United's financial pulling power may prove decisive in the race to sign Rice. Most clubs will be interested in Declan, who has a big decision to make. It's about what deal is on the table, Man United can pay more money than Arsenal.
