West Ham have named their price for Declan Rice, talkSPORT’s Jim White has revealed.
The England international is a wanted man this summer with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all interested.
The Blues have been long-term admirers of the midfielder, who they released from their academy as a teenager.
Mikel Arteta registered an interest in Rice during the January transfer window with the indication that the player was keen on a move to north London.
United are also in the race with Erik ten Hag looking at ways to improve the squad while the impact of Casemiro has been monstrous at Old Trafford.
talkSPORT host White revealed the kind of sums that it would take to prise him away from the London Stadium, while also detailing a bid that was made by the Red Devils last summer.
He said on White and Jordan: “What would it take for a bid to be deemed successful in the next window? It is our understanding £120million, plus add-ons, would get him.
“We understand that Manchester United last summer bid £100m and didn’t get him. Chelsea, Arsenal and United are still in the frame.
“That’s what it would take £120m, plus add-ons.”

Rice was arguably the best player on the pitch when West Ham drew 1-1 against Newcastle on Saturday at St. James’ Park and David Moyes insisted he would cost more than Enzo Fernandez.
The Argentina international joined Chelsea on Deadline Day for a British record £107m and the Scottish coach said Rice was worth more.
Moyes said after the Newcastle result: “Declan was a top player in the first half, he showed so many things.
“Undoubtedly he’s going to be a top player and undoubtedly he’ll be a British transfer record and more whenever he leaves West Ham.”
However, whether the Hammers can command a fee totalling more than £107m looks unlikely with Rice set to enter the final year of his contract this summer.
It means that West Ham could risk losing the Englishman for nothing as he has not indicated to the club that he would be willing to sign a new contract anytime soon.
