Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Tuesday, November 24.
Tuesday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:
West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has insisted that he is "loving life" at the club amid persistent speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea.
The Blues have been strongly credited with an interest in the 21-year-old during recent transfer windows and are expected to revive their pursuit of him in January too, despite West Ham reportedly valuing him at around £80m.
Should Chelsea complete a deal then it would highlight a costly decision by the club to release Rice at the age of 14, but the England international believes that was the best thing to have happened to him.
"I think that's the making of me to be honest with you," Rice told Sky Sports News.
"I had to move to West Ham at 14, away from my family. I'm a family boy, love my mum and dad, live at home with them, and to leave them at 14 to play with people I don't know from Monday to Friday, I think that shaped me into the person I am.
"I had to start being responsible for myself, but look, I've come here and flourished. I've had three managers that have really looked after me, I'm loving life here."
Rice has become a regular for club and country since breaking into the West Ham first team, making 119 appearances for the Hammers and winning 13 caps for England.
Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has reportedly given his seal of approval to Jack Grealish amid a possible move to the Etihad for the Aston Villa man.
Grealish - linked with a move to City's arch-rivals Manchester United in the summer - has been integral to Villa's stellar start to the campaign and already boasts four goals and six assists from eight Premier League matches this term.
The 25-year-old has also impressed at international level and turned out for England against De Bruyne in their Nations League defeat to Belgium, and the City playmaker reportedly liked what he saw.
According to The Independent, Pep Guardiola is focused on City's transfer business after committing his future to the four-time Premier League champions, and the Spaniard picked De Bruyne's brains over Grealish.
The report claims that City are now prepared to swoop for Grealish following conversations between De Bruyne and Guardiola, although having penned a new deal at Villa Park until 2025 over the summer, it would supposedly take a bid in excess of £100m to convince Dean Smith's side to sell.
However, with a move for Lionel Messi believed to be dead in the water, it appears that City are certainly willing to focus all their efforts on a deal for Grealish, and the Citizens would have the financial muscle to pull off a transfer.
