Real Madrid to challenge Arsenal for Premier League midfielder

Arsenal will face competition from Real Madrid in their bid to land Declan Rice at the end of this season.

The Gunners have made the Englishman a priority signing when this season ends in their bid to keep bolstering Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Rice has been one of the finest midfielders in the Premier League over the last few seasons and will be valuable to any team he joins next.

Arsenal is keen to make the ex-Chelsea trainee their next big-money buy, but a report via The Sun reveals Real Madrid will consider a move for the England World Cup star.

This means the Gunners must be prepared to see off a major competitor to add the midfielder to their squad.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Rice has been superb for West Ham, so it is not such a surprise that the midfielder is attracting the attention of top European sides.

If we are serious about our interest in the 24-year-old, we must act fast because Madrid is most footballers’ dream club and he might choose to move there over a transfer to the Emirates if we act late.

But if he prepares to stay in the Premier League, then we have an advantage over the Whites.

  1. That’s why I’ve said it in my comment my postings that if it’s better for Arsenal to sign Declan Rice this winter window.
    More so, if it’s true that they have priorised his signing above any other defensive midfielder on the market this winter.
    But for Arsenal to be waiting till next summer before they’ll sign him. Arsenal should better sign him is not guaranteed they will get him signed by then.
    Even if they still want to sign him that next summer, they may be out bid for his signing by a heavy money bag rich club side such as Real Madrid.
    Or Arsenal themselves may decide to not do his signings next summer which is usually the case with them. As they hardly go back the next window to try to sign the player who they’ve missed out on him to sign the previous window. Or the club moved away from to sign him.
    So therefore, if Arsenal didn’t sign Declan Rice this winter window. Maybe due to some reasons beyond their control which made it not possible for them to sign him. Then, I think the likelihood of Arsenal signing Declan Rice next summer transfer window maybe dead in the waters.

    Or Arsenal themselves may change their mind deciding to not do his signings next summer. Which is usually the case with them as they hardly go back the next window to try to sign the player who they’ve missed out on him to sign the previous window. Or the club moved away from to sign him.

  3. Okay. Jon Fox, thanks I can agree. But in the wake of the reported keen injury suffered by Elneny. Has it not now become more very necessary for Arsenal to in this winter inter do a top top new defensive midfielder signing for top options and to provide top cover for Partey or Xhaka at the base of the Arsenal defence? And lay to rest this winter of the lingering matter of signing a new top top Dmf to rest once and for all for a long time.
    That is why among those 5 holding midfielders who Aesenal are being linked with signing one of them in: Declan Rice, Moises Caicedo, Martin Zubimendi, Amaduo Onana and Weston Mckennie in my pecking order. It will be better if Arsenal sign the very best out of the 5 best. But if they can’t afford his cost to sign him i.e. Declan Rice this winter. Then they could move to Moises Caicedo to sign him. But if not possible, let them nove on to Zubimendi. And if him too not possible. How about Onana? But if Arsenal not do his signing also. Shouldn’t they be able to sign Mckennie?
    But since Declan Rice looks to be the best of the 5 bests. That’s why I am suggesting Arsenal should sign the very best of the best five linked with them for signing this winter.
