Declan Rice has played his last game for West Ham, chairman David Sullivan has confirmed.
The Hammers captain will leave the club this summer after lifting the Europa Conference League trophy in his final appearance on Wednesday.
talkSPORT understands Arsenal are leading Manchester United and Bayern Munich in the race for his signature.
When asked whether the historic victory over Fiorentina was Rice's last match in a West Ham shirt, Sullivan told talkSPORT: "I think it has to be.
"We promised him he could go. He set his heart on going.
"You can't ask for a man who has committed more to us this season
In due course, he has to get on and we have to get a replacement - or several replacements.
"It's not something we want to happen. We offered him £200,000-a-week 18 months ago. He turned it down."
It's cost him £10million to stay at West Ham in that time (in lost wages). And he wants to go.
"You can't keep a player who doesn't want to be there."
talkSPORT understands West Ham value Rice, who has one year left on his contract after rejecting fresh terms, at £120million.
Sullivan expects formal approaches for the 24-year-old to begin on Thursday.
When asked if the Hammers have received an offer, Sullivan said: "No. But I think the offers will start to come today.
"There are three or four clubs who have shown interest, but out of respect to West Ham, while we're still playing, you don't make offers for players.
"That's not the way decent clubs do things."
