West Ham have struggled for consistency so far this season and have lost six of their opening 12 Premier League matches.

The Hammers splashed over £100m under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini in the summer but have so far failed to utilise their quota of new additions to provide a significant boost on the field.

However, there have been some bright sparks from the performances of the likes of Marko Arnautovic, Declan Rice and Felipe Anderson but those displays are not going unnoticed from rival clubs.

19-year-old academy graduate Rice sees his future surrounded by a wealth of speculation as the club have failed to secure the teenager to a new long-term deal, despite the fact he has developed into a crucial asset already.

Some of the latest speculation states that Manchester United are interested in a deal for the starlet, who is also involved in an international tug-of-war between the Republic of Ireland and England, which has led fans to react on social media.

We have gathered some of their reactions below.
