Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “He [Rice] is huge. No team wants to lose their best player.
“He’s the main man and is the key to everything they do, but I think we all know the clock is ticking for his time being at West Ham.”
New Recruits Added
After a fruitful season in which West Ham finished seventh – having ended the previous campaign in sixth – Johnson is hopeful that new additions to the squad will see the Hammers maintain their strong form in 2022-23.
David Moyes has thus far added Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes and made Alphonse Areola’s loan move permanent, while negotiations are reportedly ongoing for Jesse Lingard.
“[West Ham have] had two great seasons on the bounce,” Johnson said.
“They only tailed off due to fatigue within their squad, which was a little bit light.
“They’ve been active in the window though and have got a few squad players in, so hopefully they can perform like they did across the whole season and not tail off towards the end.”
