The 22-year-old has been exceptional for the Hammers over the past few years. And now it seems as though Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to bring him to Anfield.

Rice’s future at the London Stadium seems uncertain after The Telegraph’s Matt Law claimed yesterday that he has turned down two new contract offers from West Ham.

Ex backed up those claims, as covered here yesterday on Hammers News.

Losing Declan Rice would be an absolute disaster. David Moyes will surely do everything in his power to keep him at the London Stadium.

If a huge offer comes in, however, and we’re talking £90 million plus, it may well be hard for the Hammers owners to keep their star man.

Links with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United have been well-documented over the past 12 months or so.

ExWHUemployee has now claimed that Liverpool are in the race as well with Jurgen Klopp thought to be weighing up an offer for the defensive midfielder.

Rice has been so good and so consistent for West Ham over the past two years. His performances for England at EURO 2020 have been outstanding this summer.

So it will be no surprise if the Reds do indeed make a concrete offer for the 22-year-old.

Klopp needs to bolster his central midfield ranks at Anfield with Georginio Wijnaldum having left for PSG.

Rice would be a fantastic signing for Liverpool. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed that the West Ham owners pay him what he deserves, however.

If we match his ambition there is no reason why he won’t stay at the London Stadium. Keeping Rice will be key to our hopes of success over the next few years. As things stand, however, that seems to be highly unlikely.
