Liverpool have been linked with West Ham’s Declan Rice, with the Reds reportedly monitoring the England international alongside several Premier League rivals.
Beyond comparisons being made positionally with Fabinho, several fans appeared in opposition to the possibility of a move from the recruitment team given the price in question.
Considering that the Hammers could very well charge a higher asking price next summer – with David Moyes having previously labelled Rice a £100m plus player – it seems a rather unlikely target for Liverpool to invest in.
That’s not to rule out a signing for the midfield when we are capable of being a more active presence in a transfer window, of course, with the club needing to bring in a more durable option when appropriate.
For a fee between £63-£100m, however, there are arguably other players that we should look to when it comes to bolstering the squad – particularly if one of the likes of Sadio Mane or Bobby Firmino is set to be offloaded in relatively near future.

Massively overrated, only reason for high price is because he plays in premier league
