West Ham are preparing for life after Declan Rice with a summer midfield departure more likely than ever… with Arsenal poised to lead the bids and Hammers eyeing Alex Scott among other targets
- Rice becomes one of the best players in the league and is joining a senior team
- West Ham are preparing to join the race for highly rated Alex Scott from Bristol City
- PSV Eindhoven’s Brahim Sancar and Man City’s Carlos Borges are also of interest
West Ham United prepare for life after Declan Rice with the midfielder’s long-awaited departure imminent.
The Hammers captain looks set to leave the London club more often than ever in the summer in favor of a team positioned higher in the Premier League table, and is not short of interest.
The 22-year-old has become a star with both club and country and is set to be pitted by teams in our battle for his services in the summer.
We know Manchester United made a £100m bid for Rice last summer and Arsenal are preparing themselves to bid this time around.
So it’s no surprise that West Ham are doing their homework on potential signings that could fill the void.

Several clubs are chasing Bristol City’s Alex Scott, with the Hammers joining the race
PSV Eindhoven’s Brahim Sanjari, Manchester City’s teenaged Carlos Borges is another, while club scouts continue to watch “Guernsey Grealish”, Bristol City’s Alex Scott.
West Ham were among those who watched him play for England Under-20s against France in Marbella last week, although the downside is that the 19-year-old suffered a knee ligament injury.
Wolves are also very supportive of Scott’s scent which is why manager Nigel Pearson is more hopeful than ever of securing the £25m Bristol City have demanded.
Meanwhile, West Ham are fighting for survival in the Premier League and took a huge step to secure their top flight status with a 1-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.
