Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly 'rates' West Ham United's Declan Rice amid suggestions that the Red Devils are keen to bring a new defensive midfielder to the club.
The 20-time English champions are said to be targeting four signings over the next two transfer windows, and a new central midfielder is allegedly high on the club's wishlist ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Solskjaer is an admirer of Rice, although it remains to be seen whether the club actively attempt to sign the England international.
The 21-year-old was strongly linked with a return to Chelsea over the summer, but the Hammers are thought to have made it clear that they will not entertain offers of under £80m.
Rice, who is also now an important player for England, has not missed a single minute of Premier League football for West Ham this season and has worn the captain's armband in all but one of their 12 league games.
The former Chelsea youngster has a contract at the London Stadium until June 2024.
