DONE DEAL!!! Jersey Number Revealed, Medicals Sealed, Paperworks Completed

Arsenal target and West Ham captain Declan Rice has given his word to the Gunners that he’ll be moving from east London to north this summer.

That’s according to reports that say that the skipper of the struggling Irons is set to leave the club that he’s come through the ranks at in order to make a huge transfer across the capital. The Gunners are top of the league and many people’s favourites for the Premier League title.

What’s more, Rice has turned down three contracts put on the table to him by his employers at the London Stadium, according to the Guardian(opens in new tab). Sky Sports(opens in new tab), meanwhile, say that one of them was an eight-year deal.

Now, Spanish outlet Nacional, via Football365(opens in new tab) have reported that Rice has told European champions Real Madrid that he isn’t interested in a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu to become the long-term replacement for Casemiro – who joined Manchester United in the summer.

Rice could have formed a ferocious midfield for the next decade with Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni in the Spanish capital – all three are under 24 years old – yet he has apparently “given his word” to Arsenal.

Jakub Kiwior’s partner has thanked Arsenal fans for the welcome she and the Gunners’ new signing have received.

Known online as Claudia Redheaded, the dancer is a former Germany Twerk competition winner and has followed the defender to London from Italy.

Claudia wrote on an Instagram story: “Thank you all for your messages! I can’t reply to everyone, but I really appreciate it! London I’m ready.”

Adapting to life in England could be tough with Kiwior set with the task of breaking into Mikel Arteta’s starting XI.

The 22-year-old completed a £22million move from Italian side Spezia earlier this week after signing a long-term contract at the club.

A player described as ‘extraordinary’ by Robert Lewandowski, Kiwior has nine caps for Poland and will be hoping to add many more to his tally with a successful time at the Emirates Stadium.

While the defender faces a challenge to break into the league leaders’ back line, Arteta is clearly a fan of the player.

After Kiwior joined the club, Arteta said: “It’s great that Jakub is joining us.

“He’s a young versatile defender who has shown huge potential and qualities with Spezia in Serie A, and also at international level with Poland.

“Jakub is a player who will give us strength and quality to our defensive unit. We welcome Jakub and his family to Arsenal and look forward to working with him.”

And the manager may still dip into the transfer market again before deadline day to shore up his midfield.
