Jack Grealish drops cheeky Declan Rice transfer hint, fans think he knows something
| Last updated
Jack Grealish has dropped a cheeky hint on social media, suggesting Declan Rice could be on the move to Manchester City.
The Gunners have seen two bids rejected by West Ham already, with the latest thought to be worth up to £90 million including add-ons.
However, it is City who have the advantage. Or at least that's the opinion of Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, who confirmed that Rice is "getting closer" to a move to the Etihad.
And Grealish has now added fuel to speculation by liking a tweet from a West Ham fan.
The one minute 40 second video titled 'Westchester City', jokes about the two clubs' connections, accompanied by the the song 'We Go Together' from Grease.
The clip was originally posted after the Hammers pulled off an impressive comeback to draw 2-2 with Arsenal, which cost the Gunners valuable points in the Premier League title race with City.
But it has since been re-shared in light of Rice's prospective move, prompting Grealish, who must be keen on the idea of his England teammate joining City, to like the tweet.
Eagle-eyed fans soon spotted the 27-year-old winger had done so, speculating that he knew something they didn't.
Taking to Twitter, one user wrote: "Rice to City here we go".
While another said: "Grealish knows".
A third added: "Jack is so messy, he definitely loves Twitter."
Indeed, Grealish could be pivotal in convincing his compatriot to sign for City after establishing himself as one of Guardiola's most trusted players last season.
But West Ham are refusing to budge on their £100 million asking price, meaning whoever ends up signing the England international will have to cough up a significant fee.
