‘Can do anything’ Wilshere insists Arsenal target is complete player

Arsenal U18 coach Jack Wilshere believes Declan Rice has what it takes to deliver for the club amidst interest in the West Ham man.

Rice is on the radar of a number of top Premier League clubs and will change homes in the summer.

Several reports believe he is heading to the Emirates to join Mikel Arteta’s side.

However, Graeme Souness says he needs to add more to his game before stepping up to a top club.

That line of thought has been debated, but Wilshere insists the England international is a complete player who can do most things on the pitch and will improve at Arsenal.

The ex-midfielder said via the Daily Mail:

‘Anyone who supports any club would want Dec to join.

‘If I’m talking from a selfish point of view, in north London, I think he would be very good under Mikel’s watch.

‘Mikel would develop him, bring him on even more and he would be massive for the team as well. I have had conversations with Dec and told him what he is doing is unbelievable, he is captain of a big Premier League club and is always learning.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Rice will divide opinion mostly because he does not score many goals, but the midfielder is a player we can trust to do well at the Emirates.

He has shown great form for the Hammers and will improve when he moves to a bigger side like Arsenal.

    1. This hype for Rice beginning to feel like Mudryk part 2: an average player made to look like an expensive and indispensable superstar only because the British press – including this site – can’t seem to find anything more interesting to write about. Rice is worth no more than 30M, but will likely cost close to 1OOM because of the hype. Did we learn anything at all from the Mudryk saga? Mind The Hype!!!

  1. A very good player who has been anchoring West ham United central midfielder so well he will surely improve any of the top six club in the EPL when I see player like Enzo Fenandez who is by far less superior than Rice playing for Chelsea it makes me really wonder how did they got him.Rice has good hight
    Has good speed to cover ground
    Very versatile plays both as a CM/CDM/CB
    Good ball retantion
    Makes more than 90 %pass accuracy dispite playing for a team like West ham who are not know for ball bossesion.
    Has a good attitude not often know for arguing with players/coaching staff
    A good leader trusted to be Captain
    A good learner
    Their is so much you can write about Declan Rice

    1. And his valuation should be in the region of 70 to 75 millions, more than that then any team should just wait for his contact to run out
