Arsenal have reportedly emerged as frontrunners in the race for West Ham United's Declan Rice this summer, with the player said to be favouring a move to the Emirates Stadium.
The 24-year-old has been the talk of intense transfer speculation over the past few months - the midfielder may have played his final game for the Hammers as they won the Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina on Wednesday night.
Having been named as West Ham's Player of the Season in back-to-back campaigns, the England international has understandably attracted interest from other clubs.
The report adds that West Ham are interested in arranging a deal with the Gunners for Rice which would see Emile Smith Rowe move to the London Stadium, with David Moyes said to be a huge admirer of the attacking midfielder.
It is understood that Rice likes the direction Arsenal are heading following their second-placed finish in the Premier League this season, and believes he could help the North London club reach the next level within the next few years.
