Arsenal told to recite Liverpool double transfer with spectacular deals

This summer, Arsenal are engaged in a fierce transfer competition with Manchester City for Declan Rice.

The Gunners have identified the England international as a priority transfer target, but West Ham has already rejected two offers. sportsdias has learned that sporting director Edu Gaspar will submit a third offer, though it is unclear whether the offer will be closer to the Hammers’ £100 million asking price.

Football.London is aware of this. Arsenal will beat City to Rice’s signature if they match the Hammers’ asking price or guarantee a substantial upfront payment. Rice prefers a move to the Emirates Stadium, but he would consider joining the Premier League champions if their offer is sufficient.

Should Arsenal acquire Rice, he will become the club’s record signing, surpassing the current £72 million mark. Many have predicted that Rice’s presence in north London will propel Mikel Arteta’s squad to the next level after they failed to reach the finals last year.

Tony Cascarino, a former Chelsea striker, has stated that Declan Rice’s arrival would be comparable to Liverpool’s 2018 acquisitions of Virgil van Dijk and Alisson. The Reds paid a world-record £75 million for Van Dijk before making Alisson the most expensive goalkeeper ever for £67 million roughly six months later.

Since moving to Anfield, Liverpool have reached three Champions League finals, ended a 30-year drought for the English Premier League championship, and won the FA Cup, EFL Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.
Cascarino told talkSPORT: “If you look at Arsenal since [Mikel] Arteta arrived in December 2019, they had 56 points that season.” “He had not played a role previously in the season, but the following year they received 61 and the following year they received 69.

“And last year they scored 84 goals, so Arsenal is on an upward trajectory. Declan Rice would have the same influence at Liverpool as Alisson and Van Dijk.”

Cacarino has doubts about Rice’s playing time at Manchester City if he declines to transfer to north London. “It’s an easy choice – Manchester City could easily win the double and possibly more next season,” he added.
“This is the most important factor to consider, but how significant a role will you play if you join Manchester City?” Because it is not inconceivable that they could spend £100 million on him and he could play a minor role for Manchester City.

“Some people may find this amusing, but that’s precisely what the first season of Jack Grealish was like. There is a significant likelihood that he will not play as much football as he would like.”
