Arsenal Set to Break Own Transfer Record with Declan Rice Signing


July 11, 2023

Arsenal is reportedly close to finalizing the signing of Declan Rice from West Ham before the team’s pre-season tour in the USA.

The Gunners are hopeful of securing the deal for a club-record fee of £105m, with an initial payment of £100m and £5m in add-ons.

If completed, the transfer would surpass Arsenal’s current record purchase of Nicolas Pepe from Lille for £72m in 2019.

While the fee falls just short of the British transfer record set by Chelsea’s acquisition of Enzo Fernandez from Benfica for £106.8m in January, it remains a significant milestone for Arsenal.
