Man City eyeing West Ham midfielder Declan Rice

Manchester City are eyeing West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

The Sun says City boss Pep Guardiola knows he needs to find a young successor for Fernandinho, who turns 34 before the end of the season.

And West Ham's highly-rated teenager Rice is the player who has caught his eye - despite only signing a new long-term contract with the club last month.

Rice has emerged as one of the country's most promising young players this season after becoming the main man in the Hammers midfield.

The way he has dominated Premier League matches despite only being 19 years old has caught the attention of Guardiola and his coaching staff at the Etihad.
