Are Arsenal really in the race for West Ham Star Midfielder?

The last few days have seen speculation about Arsenal “officially” entering the race for Declan Rice, arguably Europe’s best defensive midfielder. For the past few seasons, as many Premier League clubs have been linked with Declan Rice, Arsenal has always steered clear of the transfer links due to the high prices being floated for his swoop. However, an insider Ex-WHU employee claims the Gunners have made bringing the Hammer on board a priority now that they can afford it.

“Declan Rice to Arsenal was talked about heavily over the week,” said the Insider Ex-WHU employee, as per the West Ham Way podcast.

“There is truth, Arsenal are one of the clubs interested in him. That kind of came from nowhere, really. Chelsea, Man United, Man City, and Liverpool have always been lurking.

“But Arsenal – mainly because I don’t think people thought they had the finances to compete – now are looking at making him a number one priority. As are Chelsea, I believe.”

There’s no denying Rice would be an incredible addition to Arsenal’s midfield; the 23-year-old has the ability to transform a basic midfield into a world-class one.

Granit Xhaka, Martin Odegaard, and Thomas Partey have already established the Gunners’ midfield as the best in the Premier League; if Rice joins the fold, the league is not ready.

So, do you think Rice is a player Arteta should go all-in on after the Mudryk swoop?

    1. exactly

      Rice, Bellinghan, Abraham and Grealish

      100m each or pay them whatever they wants

      they are quality players that can improve the squad tremendously

  1. After Mudryk , Arsenal should go all out for Declan Rice. He wiil sure surely add grit and quality to our Midfield.Any injury to Partey now would send our season crashing down cos Lokonga is definitely a non starter.

    1. Sideways? Currently Arsenal is the only club that has to look down the table to see opponents.

      Great career move for Rice to bail on a flailing WHU club who has already regressed back to mediocrity.

      Support your club by all means, but please continue taking your medication as I fear you are delusional.

  2. If we qualify for the Champions League next season I see no reason why we shouldn’t go for Rice and as we are a young team which can only get better and can keep all our current players why wouldn’t he think seriously about joining us.

  3. Yes
    Most definitely
    Arteta should go all-in on Declan Rice
    and send Lokonga on loan and recall Patino
