Arsenal aim to secure Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber deals ahead of US Pre-Season Tour

Arsenal are optimistic about securing the signing of Declan Rice from West Ham United before their pre-season tour in the US.

Although the Gunners have reached a club-record agreement of £105 million with the Hammers, the transfer has not yet been made official.

Rice reportedly underwent a medical examination with the North Londoners on Friday, but the deal’s final wording still needs approval from the club’s lawyers.
