England star, Rice, completes transfer to Arsenal

Declan Rice became Britain’s most expensive player on Saturday as Arsenal signed the England midfielder from West Ham for a reported £105 million pounds ($137.5 million).

Rice’s blockbuster move surpassed the previous record £100 million fee paid by Manchester City for Jack Grealish in 2021 as Arsenal continue their spending spree in a bid to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

The 24-year-old said in a letter to West Ham supporters that his desire to play at the “very highest level” lay behind his decision to join Arsenal.

Rice’s switch to the Emirates Stadium on a long-term contract comes just months after he lifted West Ham’s first major trophy since 1980 in the Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina.
