Arsenal & Liverpool both keen to sign Declan Rice next season

Declan Rice is rumored to be interested in a move to north London. It is speculated that Arsenal are one of the clubs considering possibly signing him in the summer.

Since the midfielder reportedly turned down many contract offers, the future of the England international has been uncertain for many months.

It’s thought that the 24-year-old turned down three better offers to stay at the London Stadium as the team’s relegation worries continue into the season’s final stretch.

According to sources, the midfielder has a number of suitors interested in signing him before the summer transfer window opens, with clubs like Arsenal, Liverpool, and Chelsea offering him the option to remain in London.

Rice is reportedly high on Arsenal’s list of players to sign during the summer transfer window as they try to bolster their midfield.

Over the years, Rice has distinguished himself as one of the Premier League’s top midfielders, earning him many accolades.

With Liverpool experiencing one of their worst seasons under Jurgen Klopp due to a drastic decline in quality and inconsistent performances, there is no question that something needs to change at Anfield ahead of the upcoming season.

The Reds have yet to capitalize on their opportunities to win trophies this season. They are 13 points behind fourth-place Manchester United in the Champions League qualification spot race.

Since Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have contracts expiring this summer, Liverpool are anticipated to release three of their most seasoned midfielders. This will open the door for a refresh in the middle of the pitch.

As a result, Rice’s signing might send shockwaves around Anfield, especially in light of reports that the club had cooled their interest in Jude Bellingham, another English star, because of his rumored price tag of €150 million (£132 million).

Rice has expressed his loyalty to West Ham. Therefore, it won’t be a cakewalk to lure one of the best midfielders of the Premier League so easily, either for the Gunners or Liverpool.
