Arsenal given a significant boost in their pursuit of Declan Rice

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to add Declan Rice to their squad in the summer as a new report reveals the midfielder likes Mikel Arteta.

Rice is a sought-after player and Arsenal’s first advantage is that he is a London boy and would want to stay in the city if he had a chance.

The Gunners have now been handed a further boost with Football Insider revealing the England international admires Mikel Arteta and would love to work with the Spanish manager.

He likes how the ex-midfielder has transformed the north London side and wants to be a part of the success there.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arteta has done a superb job at the Emirates and his CV will attract new clubs and players will consider him while thinking about their next move.

Several top clubs in the country will want Rice at the end of this season, but if the work of Arteta attracts him, the ball is in our court now and we must ensure we take full advantage of that to add him to the group by the end of the term.

If we fail to do so, someone else will and we must not wait until the transfer window swings open before we start probing what it would take to seal the deal.

  1. Why do you keep repeating this garbage? The transfer window is closed until June. In June if Rice is made available there will be plenty of suitors so there will be a bidding war. He may or may not want to come to Arsenal but we saw how that works out this January. It is complete nonsense to keep putting out stories about a possible transfer that is at least 4 months away and about which we are likely to be outbid anyway.

    1. Sorry to disappoint you but summer transfer talks don’t start in June. This is the same as both Jesus and Zinny. Both talks started around this time which put us ahead of others, Chelsea and Real for Jesus.

      Even watch Ramsdale’s recent podcast, he said first spoke to Arsenal months before it broke.

      Whether or not this deal can get done is another question.

  2. Forget Declan. Jude Bellingham is who we should have been courting. Jude his Veira x5. Jude is 19/20 years old 150M investment over 10 years it’s a no-brainer, we would have got him cheap. The boys have “world-class” English & love Arsenal. Let’s go get him. Offer the price they want up front, with no procrastination

    1. Sygre, how much of the £150,000,000 transfer fee and his, what, £200,000 a week salary (plus bonuses I guess?) is coming out of your pocket?

      Just wondering, as it seems you can spend someone else’s money at the drop of a hat!!

  3. The answer is in my comment 150m divided over a set period l. What you fail to understand, Stan has the money he chooses to spend it elsewhere. 160M for winning the prem. Champions league money? Sell of fringe players. New kit every 6 months, sponsorship deals. Come on if Stan can take us where we want to go he should be forces to step aside and let someone who’s willing to spend big take the helm, mediocre is not what I want or expect it was the lack of spending which limited Wenger latter part of his stewardship.
