The summer transfer market has finally opened, and it’s likely to be a record-breaking few months, with several big Premier League clubs set to spend big.

Declan Rice price rises β€˜dramatically’ as West Ham United reject Arsenal again


The race for the title and a spot in the top four is expected to be fiercely contested, with at least seven clubs already leading the push.

Newcastle United have entered the traditional ‘big six’ after finishing fourth last season, however Brighton and Aston Villa were also impressive.

Clubs will be actively boosting their squads this summer, with so much at stake and competition stiff. Let us have a look at some of the most recent.

Rice getting closer to Gunners switch

Arsenal are also desperately trying to reach an agreement with Declan Rice. West Ham have maintained their Β£100 million value and have thus far rejected proposals from Arsenal worth up to Β£90 million, including add-ons.

The Gunners are expected to make another offer that is considerably closer to West Ham’s valuation, and Rice has stated that he only wants to join Arsenal, so a deal is likely to go through eventually.

Those who own West Ham United tickets may be disappointed by their captain’s departure, but most will recognize that it is time for him to move on in his career.

Rice led West Ham to the Europa Conference League title last season, so he’ll be departing on a high, and he’ll be a fantastic signing for Arsenal if this planned move goes through.

Rice’s arrival will allow Grant Xhaka to complete his return to Germany. The Swiss international is expected to join Bayer Leverkusen for Β£13 million.

Thomas Partey has also been linked with a transfer away from the Emirates Stadium, with teams in Saudi Arabia looking at a potential deal.

If Partey leaves, Arsenal will need a replacement, and Romero Lavia of Southampton has been heavily linked.

Kai Havertz to join Arsenal

It has been widely believed that Arsenal and Chelsea have reached an agreement to sign Kai Havertz.

The Gunners will pay Β£60 million upfront with an additional Β£5 million in add-ons for the German international.

Havertz has agreed to a long-term contract for approximately Β£210,000 per week and is scheduled to have his medical in the coming days.

The 24-year-old has been inconsistent since joining Chelsea, but he did score the game-winning goal in the Champions League final against Manchester City, and his versatility will be an advantage for Arsenal.

Kai Havertz spent much of last season as a striker for Chelsea, but he can also play behind the main striker, as a box-to-box midfielder, or even on the wing. Arteta prefers versatile players, so it’s easy to see why he leaped at the chance to add Havertz.
