Writing on Twitter, reliable West Ham source and club insider ExWHUemployee has shared news regarding Declan Rice as links with a move away continue to heat up – claiming the key to his exit will be whether Chelsea meet his asking price.
Rice has been heavily touted to leave the London Stadium ever since the summer window, and while he is not agitating for a transfer, he could reconsider his stance if West Ham accept a large offer from their cross-town rivals (ExWHUemployee).
Should West Ham adopt a not-for-sale policy with Declan Rice?
Yes, can't let him leave
No, need to think of the player
Flocking to this update, many Irons have had their say on the ‘disappointing‘ update – claiming GSB should adopt a no sale policy regardless of whether a big money bid is received.
Alongside Tomas Soucek, the 21-year-old has been a mainstay for David Moyes this season – starting every Premier League game together over 2020/2021 (WhoScored).
Rice leaving mid-way through the campaign as West Ham chase a Europa League spot would certainly be a massive blow, and while nothing is set in stone, these Hammers still flocked to have their say on this development.

West Ham fans react to Rice claim
That’s disappointing if true Ex, it should be shutters up and no sale surely?

To sell in January would be a total disaster! Impossible to replace him with equal quality and every team would see us coming with the Rice money in our pockets.

If he leaves in January I give up on this club lol we’re playing well, he’s our leader then sell him half way through the season!!

Would be madness to sell in January.. the problem is Declan knows our owners and with them in charge he knows they won’t back Moyes .. so finish the season on a high , have a great Euros with England and then every top club in Europe will want him .. hold out for £120-150M …

The fact we have a price is a joke itself. https://t.co/rgJVMDKuJA

Why would we even have a transfer price? He’s irreparable
