West Ham United have rejected Arsenal's first offer for captain Declan Rice, 90min understands, but talks will continue between the two clubs.

The Hammers have been anticipating bids to come in for Rice in the aftermath of their Europa Conference League win over Fiorentina, with their negotiating position clear – an offer worth at least £100m will need to come in for a deal to be agreed.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are all interested in signing Rice and chairman David Sullivan recently confirmed that the club had reluctantly agreed to let the 24-year-old go.
