Sometimes it is difficult to compete against the big clubs in Europe when it comes to transfers. They arrive with large sums of money and can sign the player of their choice without making an effort to do so.

This is the case with Bayern Munich. They have dominated the Bundesliga without much effort and, in this last season when they were in danger of losing it, Borussia Dortmund did not know how to compete and they handed the title to the German League's biggest winners.

Arsenal were the opposite. They were top of the Premier League and in the last few games deflated to see Manchester City take away the prize of being champions and achieve the historic treble by also winning the UEFA Champions League.

The two had a common target in the form of a luxury transfer. And it looks like Mikel Arteta's management hit the jackpot, as the Germans are reportedly on the verge of giving up on further negotiations.

A number of specialist sites have reported that Bayern Munich have given up on further negotiations for Declan Rice. The West Ham player has already reached a verbal agreement with Arsenal and would be signing a contract in the next few days. An essential addition to the Gunners aspirations.
