West Ham are seriously considering the prospect of being without Declan Rice next season.
Declan Rice has been strongly tipped to leave West Ham this summer, amid interest from a number of clubs.
It is believed that Bayern Munich could be an option for the England midfielder, though there’s interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United too.
To prepare for Rice’s exit, West Ham are believed to be looking at a number of key targets for next season.
FootballTransfers believe the midfielders in question are Southampton’s Jame Ward-Prowse, Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher and Manchester United’s Scott McTominay.

McTominay is not a regular starter so his future will likely depend on what offers United get for his services. With links to players like Mason Mount and Adrien Rabiot, the Scotland international is likely to be pushed further down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
The 26-year-old made 10 starts in the Premier League this season — on top of 14 appearances from the bench. The question is does he want to move elsewhere for regular game time?
There’s also a suggestion, in the same report, that West Ham could make a move for United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
Recent reports stress that Nottingham Forest have a deal in place to sign Henderson on a permanent deal.
We are sure United would welcome a bidding war if West Ham decide to get involved. Maybe the Hammers will be super generous and take Anthony Martial off our hands too!
