Arsenal have saved millions in January – enough to fund Declan Rice in the summer

Arsenal was lucky in terms of the January transfer window. They were willing to spend a lot of money, but these expensive deals fell through.

Some Arsenal fans may be disappointed that, despite the club’s willingness to spend big on top targets Mykhailo Mudryk and Moises Caicedo, they did not get the pair.

But don’t you think that because Arsenal didn’t overspend this winter but was willing to do so, spending big in the summer transfer window won’t be an issue?

According to the Guardian, Mikel Arteta has already decided who he wants for the summer. According to the publication, Arteta wants to sign Declan Rice from West Ham, something Chelsea and Manchester United have failed to do.

Signing the Hammer will be difficult, but with the 24-year-old’s contract expiring in 2024 and a reasonable offer, he could be acquired easily with the funds we have saved from Mudryk and Caicedo.

If Arsenal is willing to spend more than £70 million on Mudryk and Caicedo, spending money to fulfil Arteta’s wish to land Rice will be no problem.

“Declan Rice is leaning towards joining Arsenal this summer because of the prospect of playing for Mikel Arteta, who has drawn up plans for where the West Ham captain would fit into his team,” writes The <a “’s Jacob Steinberg.

  1. His contract may expire in 2024 but West Ham also have an option to extend for another year so 2025 in reality

      1. LMFAO.

        Scary thing is…. we would buy and offer a 18 month contract with the 1 year extension. 🤣

    1. Then Arsenal should turn to less
      expensive quality options such as
      the following players.

      E Zubimendi
      M. Caicedo
      A Onana
      R. Neves
      I Bennacer
      Manu Kone
      I Sangare

      ALL of these DM’s would be
      fantastic additions to the squad
      and cost AFC far less than DR

      It’s hard for me to buy into the
      ongoing narrative that DR is the
      SOLE missing piece to the AFC
      EPL championship puzzle. Dude
      is a very good player but Arsenal
      will be just fine without him
      going forward.

      1. Don’t forget that DR is homegrown and English ! This is vital to have some. We can fill 17 non homegrown,i know. But look at Wenger years. I think we got less loved to because we did not have that many English players. Even if he tried a bit with chamberlain or chambers, we never had really a lot more than 2/3 English in the squad maximum for 15 years. We need some English spine.

  2. There is no doubt we should have a healthy war chest come this summer.

    Can you imagine our signing in the summer should we lift that big jug.

  3. According to the Guardian? In reality, we know nothing until a bid is actually submitted by the club [Caicedo, Mudryk] or a deal is already complete [F. Vieira, Kiwior].

    How many gazillion times have we heard that Arsenal wants Youri Tielemans, with everyone and their zaza and gaga postulating and genuflecting? Stop falling for the clickbait!

    We do not know if Arsenal wants Rice for sure. We will find out in the summer. Fin.
