Jose Mourinho declares interest in West Ham star Declan Rice

By Adrian Stiles

The Daily Star Sunday can reveal the Old Trafford club have officially declared their interest in Rice, who is involved in a contract dispute with the Hammers.

Boss Jose Mourinho is keen on Rice, 19 who is regarded as one of the most promising centre-backs in the country – and that is a problem position for United.

The defender has also demonstrated his versatility by excelling in the Premier League as a holding midfielder.

And the Hammers have had an improved deal, believed to be £20,000-a-week, rejected.

West Ham want to keep Rice, who has also been linked with Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Everton and Germany’s Borussia Dortmund.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if Manchester City, in the market for a defensive midfielder to eventually succeed Fernandinho, also showed interest.

But at the moment, the strongest interest is coming from City’s neighbours United.


West Ham and Wolves reportedly among clubs looking at Emiliano Sala

Subhankar Mondal

West Ham United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton and Crystal Palace are interested in signing Emiliano Sala from Nantes in the January transfer window

It has been reported that Palace are planning to make a £15 million move for Nantes forward Sala in January.
The report has also claimed that the Eagles’ Premier League rivals, West Ham, Wolves and Everton, all are keeping tabs on the Argentine.

The former Bordeaux forward is reported to be keen to move on, despite his current contract with Nantes running until July 2020.

Good record in Ligue 1

Sala has a good record in Ligue 1 and has been playing well for Nantes in recent years.

According to WhoScored, the Argentine forward has scored 11 goals in 10 Ligue 1 appearances for Vahid Halilhodzic’s side so far this season.

The 28-year-old found the net 12 times in the league in each of the past two seasons for Les Canaris, according to WhoScored.

The Argentine would be a decent signing for any club in the Premier League, although he could take some time to adapt if he joins in the January transfer window.


Hammers hit by new long term injury blow

West Ham have been hot by another major injury blow with Ryan Fredericks set to spend three months on the sidelines.

The right back was injured at Huddersfield after appearing as a substitute for Pablo Zabaleta with manager Manuel Pellegrini revealing after the match he had been unable to walk.

Fredericks has damaged his ankle and according to ClaretandHugh‘s best source looks set to be out of action for around three months.

In a text message our highly placed insider told us: “It looked bad at the time and it has turned out that way. We expect Ryan to be out for approximately three months. We feel sorry for the lad and we as a club are getting no luck with injuries whatsoever at the moment.“

Although both Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere are expected back after the international break it means Fredericks will join Winston Reid, Andriy Yarmolenko, Manu Lanzini and Carlos Sanchez as long term injury victims.
