Arsenal confident they will sign Rice and might add another big-money signing

Arsenal remains in the running for Declan Rice and cannot wait to add the midfielder to their squad at the end of this season.

However, the West Ham man is also on the radar of the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea, so adding him to the squad at the Emirates would not be easy.

Mikel Arteta’s side has been one of the top clubs in Europe and will revamp their squad in the summer before returning to the Champions League next term.

A report in The Times reveals Arsenal remains confident they will win the race for Rice despite the competition they face.

Talk Sport adds he will be one of many midfielders they would target and the Gunners will likely return to Brighton to add Moises Caicedo to their squad when the season finishes.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Rice would be a superb signing for us and Caicedo was a January target for a reason.

Granit Xhaka, Jorginho and Thomas Partey are not getting younger and we must start planning to replace them as soon as possible.

These targets are players who have done well in England and certainly will suit our style of play, so it is exciting to think of them wearing our white and red shirts.

  1. I think if we add Rice we better add another midfielder that can do what Xhaka does + better goal treat and ball-carrying skills, and more close control. Don’t think Caicedo is the answer.

    1. Rice replaces Xhaka he is better in everyway and much more mobile Caicedo replaces Partey brilliant box to box player

    2. We already have one in the talented Zinchenko who operates in left central midfield for the Ukraine.

  2. Rice and the Caicedo kid would be awesome, that’s the kind of statement signings that will the rest take note.

    Caicedo is a mobile midfielder with an ridiculously high ceiling is a good carrier of the ball.
    Rice is a powerful defensive midfielder that is as solid as they get.

    And with the war chest only slightly disturbed in the winter there is a real feeling good things could happen

  3. If we get Rice, I suspect he will share the Xhaka role.

    That would allow Caicedo (if we get him too) to share the Partey role.

    Jorghino could cover for Odegard, along with Viera.

    I noticed that Tierney, when he came on, seemed to play like Zinc, in that he was seen, several times, in midfield.
    Maybe he will stay if he gets on the Champions League roster for next season.

    When Jesus comes back, we will have three forwards (None currently prolific scorers though).

    So, The only player without cover is Saka (unless we have someone in the reserves to fill that role..


    I would like to say I am really glad that ESR got time in the game, but he looked every much off the pace. But this is a start for him.

    I think Jorghino has played well in the last two games, but I am glad that Partey is back.

  4. If this piece of news is anything to write home about, then Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo would be a breathless plug-ins for.

    Rice for Xhaka and Caicedo for Partey. The EPL experience of Rice and Caicedo would make it seamless for us.
