Bayern Munich have joined the race for West Ham and England star Declan Rice.

The midfielder, 23, is expected to be in high demand next summer, with the Hammers braced for bids in excess of £100million for their main man.

Premier League sides Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool are all said to be vying for his signature but they could now face stiff competition from one of Europe’s heavyweights.

Spanish outlet Fichajes say Bundesliga champions Bayern see Rice as a quality addition to their midfield.

Julian Nagelsmann believes the Three Lions ace could thrive alongside Joshua Kimmich in the centre of the park, with question marks over Leon Goretzka and Ryan Gravenberch's form this term.

He is not the first Premier League talent to be linked with the Bavarians of late, with reports indicating Tottenham duo Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son are on their radar.

It is indicated a return to Chelsea remains the most likely option for Cobham graduate Rice, with owner Todd Boehly keen to build a young, exciting new squad at Stamford Bridge.

Jude Bellingham, who has started alongside Rice in England’s first two World Cup games in Qatar, is also on the Blues’ wish list.
