Declan Rice could reportedly be available for £50m at the end of the season as West Ham United attempt to bring in some money.

West Ham United are prepared to accept a cut-price offer of £50m for midfielder Declan Rice this summer, according to a report.

The England international is rumoured to have come close to joining Chelsea last year, only for the Blues - where he spent time as a youngster - to pull out of a deal.

Chelsea are still in the running to sign Rice at the end of the campaign, while fellow Premier League heavyweights Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United are also supposedly keen.

West Ham were holding out for close to £80m last summer, but 90 min claims that the Hammers will settle for a far lower amount in the next window.

It is suggested that United are keen to recoup some money given the large amounts lost through ticketing sales and sponsorship deals during the coronavirus pandemic.

Rice's father Sean is rumoured to have taken over as the holding midfielder's agent, meanwhile, meaning that all clubs will have to deal directly with him should they match West Ham's valuation.
