Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd move for Arsenal hero, Chelsea make breakthrough, Leeds exodus

Arsenal could see their chances of signing Declan Rice slip away over the coming weeks as links between the West Ham captain and Bayern Munich gather pace.

Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel reportedly holds Rice to be his 'absolute dream signing', and despite initial concern over whether the Bundesliga club could meet his £100million price tag, they are now thought to be in a position to cough up.

According to Sport1, pursuing Rice now has complete priority at the Allianz Arena. Bayern's search for a new striker has taken a back-seat as a result, with Juventus marksman Dusan Vlahovic emerging as one of their prime candidates.

Even more concerning for Arsenal is the claim that Rice 'can imagine' playing in Bavaria as he looks to test himself at the top level, and most importantly in the Champions League.
