Whilst pondering what the summer could have in store were club’s to approach the Irons for Rice, Jordan suggested that offers of around ”£80million, £90m” could be forthcoming.
White added: ”[West Ham part-owner David] Sullivan has already told me it’s got to be north of £100m or they won’t entertain it.”
The club are under no immediate pressure to sell Rice, who is under contract at the London Stadium until 2024. However, interest is almost inevitable in a player who continues to flourish at Premier League level and whose potential knows no bounds.
Football fans have been adding their thoughts to the debate on Rice’s worth whilst the Hammers faithful make their own case…
