Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City all remain interested in the England midfielder, who has excelled for the Hammers so far this season after a stellar Euro 2020 campaign with England, and could make a move for the 22-year-old in January.
Rice, who has three years left on his current deal at the London Stadium, is reportedly showing little interest in committing his future to the Hammers beyond that because of his growing ambitions to play in the Champions League.
But the England international insists that ‘nothing’s up’ and reiterated that he’s committed to his current club.
‘We’ve spoken about it lots in the past. Everyone knows how I feel about West Ham and how I feel about playing under the manager and what it’s like playing with the group of players I’m playing with,’ Rice said ahead of West Ham’s Europa League clash with Rapid Vienna on Thursday.
‘I feel you can see in my performances nothing’s up, nothing’s concerning me. I’m playing with a smile on my face, I’m going out there, I’m leading the team.
‘I think you could see a difference if I wasn’t going out there and giving 100 per cent but every time I’m putting on the shirt – I’ve got the armband on at the moment – my only objective is to go out there and give everything for the club and get three points.
‘We can achieve good things. Last season we finished three points off the Champions League.
