Payment structure delays Rice's £105m move to Arsenal

No deal has been agreed yet to take Declan Rice from West Ham to Arsenal as talks continue over the payment structure of the transfer.

The overall fee - worth £105m - is not an issue with one source claiming it has been agreed in principle.

While there is still a willingness from all parties to get it done, there is still work to do before the clubs find a resolution.

Rice is now free to discuss personal terms and have his medical with Arsenal.

The transfer breaks down as an £100m initial fee plus £5m in performance related add-ons

Arsenal have already had two club-record bids rejected by the Irons - a £90m bid comprising a £75m fee and £15m in add-ons and an opening offer thought to be worth £80m plus add-ons.

The offer smashes Arsenal's transfer record - the £72m they paid Lille for Nicolas Pepe in 2019
