England picked up a 2-1 victory over Italy in the qualifiers for the Euros last night, and reported Arsenal target Declan Rice was on the score sheet.
The Three Lions went into the game in Naples looking for revenge after what happened in the final of the Euros in 2021. Gareth Southgate’s men got the job done, and Rice played a huge part.
Arsenal fans are all saying the same thing about the West Ham United man after his performance last night.
Arsenal target Declan Rice shines for England vs Italy
It is no secret at this point that Arsenal are interested in signing Rice this summer.
The Telegraph reported back in January that the West Ham star is Mikel Arteta’s priority transfer target at the end of this season. He is the man we need in the middle of the park, and there’s a big chance we could get him.
Rice will enter the final year of his contract this summer. He is almost guaranteed to move to a bigger club, and The Guardian claimed that Arsenal are the side he’ll ‘likely’ join before the start of next season.
The 24-year-old is exactly what we need in the middle of the park.
He would be an upgrade over Granit Xhaka and also a long-term successor to Thomas Partey. He can be our present and future if we sign him, and he showed his class again last night.
Rice opened the scoring for England in the 13th minute and that put the Three Lions on their way. He was superb last night, especially in the first half. We’re sure Arteta would’ve been impressed by his display.
