Arsenal could make a move for West Ham United and England international midfielder Declan Rice, according to CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs. The well-known and well-respected journalist has claimed that the Gunners admire the England international and could make a bid for the 23-year-old, who can also operate as a defender.
Rice is one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League and has been superb for West Ham over the years. The Hammers are struggling in the Premier League and could get relegated to the Championship at the end of the season. Rice is 23 now and is at the right age to take the next step in his career and move to a bigger and more ambitious club.
Arsenal are as many as seven points clear of second-placed and defending champions Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table at the moment and could win the title this season.
