Thomas Tuchel reportedly travelled to London to hold talks with Declan Rice over a summer move to Bayern Munich.

The German giants, who secured their 11th consecutive Bundesliga title on Sunday, are set to rival Arsenal for the West Ham star.

talkSPORT understands that the Gunners are still the favourites to sign the 24-year-old despite the emergence of Bayern’s interest.

However, Tuchel appears to be taking the necessary steps to try and convince Rice to join him in Germany.

BILD report that in the week before their Bundesliga win, he was part of a delegation that travelled to London that met with the England international.

Tuchel was alongside technical director Marco Neppe and the then sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, who was now left his role.

It is said that the meeting in the English capital, which lasted for 90 minutes, ‘went well’.

Rice is likely to be one of the most sought after players in the summer transfer window.

talkSPORT understands that Manchester United are keeping tabs on his situation at West Ham in the coming weeks.

With just one year left on Rice’s deal, the Hammers could cash in now in order to potentially not lose him on a free transfer next summer.

A move to Old Trafford could also see him play alongside his best friend Mason Mount who is set to leave Chelsea, with United joining Arsenal and Liverpool in the race for his signature.

Rice has made 244 appearances across all competitions for West Ham since he made his debut in 2017.

He could end his career in east London on a high, though, as David Moyes’ side prepare for their Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina next week.
