Arsenal management are pleased with the progress of their pursuit of West Ham captain Declan Rice.
Arsenal continue to grow in confidence that they will sign Rice in the summer, says The Telegraph.
Rice is out of contract at the London Stadium in 2024. However, the Hammers do have the option to extend his deal by a further year. West Ham still may be forced to sell this summer in order to get a sizable fee for the 24-year-old.
Arsenal are confident they can win the race to Rice's signature. And the report says the Premier League leaders' pursuit of Brighton star Moises Caicedo will have no impact on whether they go after Rice or not in the summer.
