The technically gifted player who be a valuable addition given Arsenal's recent wobble.

It is thought that Rice will make a decision before the start of the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign which begins in March and Rice's West Ham teammate Michail Antonio gave a positive update, from an Irish point of view, on where the young star's loyalties lie.

"We'll see what happens in the next days", Pellegrini told Sky Sports after West Ham's 1-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday.

Emery left Mesut Ozil out of his matchday squad for the trip to West Ham despite the playmaker returning to training following an injury.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery wants to sell Mesut Ozil before the end of the January transfer window, according to a report. We could've won or lost.

Arnautovic's desire to leave West Ham was reiterated by his brother - who acts as his agent - shortly after the club rejected the £35million offer for the former Stoke City man.

Declan Rice made headlines yesterday when he scored the victor for West Ham in their derby against Arsenal, putting the icing on an accomplished midfield display.

Murray, 31 , struggled to share the news at the Australian Open in Melbourne , which he withdrew from past year due to injury. Second seeds Rafael Nadal and Angelique Kerber - both former champions - also play on Monday.

"I have been in these situations a lot of times".

But, the 19-year-old did not have to wait too long to get off the mark, curling in a handsome effort from a Nasri lay off three minutes after the interval as Arsenal failed to clear a West Ham corner.

The German, who has been sidelined through injury but was passed fit for Saturday's game, did not travel to the London Stadium, with Emery saying, 'the players here are better for the match today'.

Although Ozil and Arnautovic were talking points, match-winner Rice was singled out for praise by Pellegrini.

"He is improving in every game he plays, he is now more used to giving us a good build-up in front".

"I am sure Declan will be a top player", he added.
