Rice posed for the multimedia magazine – which was founded by former British GQ Style Deputy Editor and Fashion Director, Elgar Johnson – as a part of his first editorial cover story.

Rice’s debut magazine cover comes amid a backdrop of growing speculation regarding his future at West Ham United. 

Sportsmail recently revealed that West Ham were eager to keep hold of Rice this summer but explained how the club were preparing to sell him in 12 months time. 

Manchester City and Manchester United have registered an interest in signing Rice after the midfielder turned down a third contract offer from the Hammers. 

Therefore, West Ham will reportedly look to sell Rice – who has more than two years left on his contract – for at least £150million in 2023 after the Qatar World Cup.

West Ham are determined to keep hold of their star midfielder Declan Rice this summer but they have conceded to the fact that they will have to sell him in 12 months time 

Pep Guardiola and new Man United boss Erik ten Hag are both vying for Rice’s signature 

His departure will come as a blow to West Ham – considering he has played an instrumental role in their success this season.

He has helped guide the Hammers to the semi-final of the Europa League and push for a top-six Premier League finish. 

Despite speculation surrounding his future, Rice insists he is focused on West Ham’s European fixture on Thursday evening. 

The Circle Zero Eight magazine is exclusive to the Design Museum from April 28 but will be available on general release from May 5.
