After finishing runners-up in the English Premier League (EPL) last season, Arsenal have vowed to win the title next season, and they’ve succeeded in landing the best player in the EPL.
West Ham ace and England national team center midfielder Declan Rice. The Hammers and Arsenal have agreed to a deal for Rice. Rice has even completed his medical. However, the deal hasn’t been made official yet.
That’s because Arsenal hasn’t paid the transfer fee.
The two clubs agreed to a fee of £150 million ($174 million) for Rice. It’s an EPL record. It’s the highest transfer fee ever for an English player, and the highest transfer fee ever for a club within the EPL. Almost the same amount as the EPL’s all-time record transfer fee of £107 million ($177.4 billion) for Chelsea’s Enzo Fernandez in 2023.
All Arsenal have to do is make the deposit, but they haven’t done so. It turns out they’re dragging their feet.
West Ham are furious at Arsenal’s behavior. There’s a lot of anger at the club for not fulfilling their end of the bargain. They’re not getting the players they want because transfer fees aren’t being paid. Rice has been training privately as he waits for the official word 메이저토토.
“West Ham are furious with Arsenal,” said The Sun. They have agreed to sign Rice but the deal has not been completed. This is because the transfer fee has not been paid. Initially, Arsenal agreed to pay £100 million upfront and £5 million later. However, the upfront transfer fee has yet to be completed,” the report said.
“Arsenal have expressed a desire to pay the transfer fee in five-year installments, but West Ham have pushed back. They want the £100 million up front. Arsenal’s lawyers are assessing the situation and West Ham’s frustration is growing.”
