Arsenal: Sky reporter makes ‘really interesting’ Declan Rice claim

Arsenal: Sky reporter makes 'really interesting' Declan Rice claim - Arsenal News

Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge has made a ‘really interesting’ 2023 transfer claim involving Arsenal and West Ham star Declan Rice.

The Lowdown: Gunners chase Caicedo deal…

The Gunners are believed to be chasing a deal for Brighton star Moises Caicedo this month as manager Mikel Arteta seeks to improve his midfield options.

Arsenal arguably have a real lack of cover in place for star man Thomas Partey, leading to links with the Ecuadorian and Rice.

As the north Londoners attempt to sign Caicedo before January 31, supporters have wondered whether this will impact a potential summer move for Rice.

The Latest: Bridge shares ‘really interesting’ Rice to Arsenal update…

Bridge, speaking on Sky Sports, now claims that a move for Caicedo won’t impact Arsenal’s summer interest in the West Ham sensation – calling the news ‘really interesting’ and ‘huge’.

He explained:

“Really interesting one this, we’re told that Arsenal remain interesting in signing Declan Rice in the summer, regardless of how successful and the outcome of their pursuit of Moises Caicedo.

“I think that’s huge, it shows the ambition of Arsenal.”

The Verdict: Very promising…

Potentially having both Caicedo and Rice in Arsenal’s ranks by the end of the summer, if the club manage to get deals over the line in each respective window, would indeed be huge.

The latter player has starred for West Ham since bursting on to the scene a few years ago, standing out as their most crucial asset with manager David Moyes even claiming he is worth £150 million at one stage.

The England international has also attracted interest from Man City, perhaps summing up his obvious quality, whilst the homegrown ace is also a proven top flight player.

Meanwhile, Caicedo has been called a ‘big player‘ by Roberto De Zerbi and currently ranks as their best tackler per 90 according to WhoScored.

Both players would come as fantastic alternatives to Partey in front of Arsenal’s back four, yet both of them would be quite simply sensational.
