Man City to jump into battle for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice

Manchester City are ready to jump into the battle for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

The Times says City are considering whether to make a move for Rice if Fernandinho leaves at the end of the season.

It is thought that the Brazil international will wait until the end of the campaign before making a decision over his future, however, and manager Pep Guardiola is said to be keen to bring in a replacement.

The report says that Rice is one of 'several options' that the City boss and his coaching staff have discussed.

It has even been suggested that Guardiola is a big admirer of the 22-year-old.
