A lot of the West Ham fanbase are discussing the latest transfer rumours around duo Declan Rice and Felipe Anderson.
According to Football Insider, co-owner David Sullivan is prepared to allow the sale of Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson this summer, but wants to keep hold of 21 year-old Declan Rice.
There has been a lot of speculation surrounding both players future, with Anderson, who has only managed one goal and four assists this campaign, via WhoScored, reportedly not being in David Moyes’ plans, according to a report from Claret and Hugh.
Meanwhile Rice is a fan favourite and admired by the manager, but fellow Premier League side and London rivals Chelsea have been heavily linked with the defensive midfielder, via Sky Sports. It seems like the England international, per Transfermarkt, will have to stay even if he does want to move and fans of the East London side would be very pleased with this as he would be a key player who can help them move further up the table and battle for a top ten finish next season.
Here is what fans had to say following the news:

Owner of the club yes, but what has that got to do with him, maybe if he wants to make them sort of decisions he should make himself manager too
