Why Arsenal could pip Chelsea to Declan Rice transfer

Declan Rice has proven himself a top quality defensive midfielder for both club and country over the last few years.And whilst West Ham fans would love to see Rice remain at their club going forward, it seems very likely that the 23-year-old will be on the move to one of the top-six in the future.For much of Rice’s time at West Ham, he has been linked with a move back to Chelsea, where he played as a boy.However, speculation on Friday suggests that the Blues are not the only club in London with a shot at Rice.Ben Jacobs provided an update on Rice to Caught Offside and suggested Arsenal could also land the Englishman.Speaking about Rice’s future, Jacobs stated: “sources have said on multiple occasions that Rice would like to stay in London, which opens the door to both Arsenal and Chelsea, perhaps more so than Manchester United.“Rice, personally, is ready for a new challenge, and he’s spoken positively about Arsenal, praising Mikel Arteta.“Having said that, I don’t think it’s Champions League or bust for Rice. Chelsea have an ambitious project built around young players that they want for the long-term, and I think that will trump something like Champions League football. Still, the Champions League does affect a club’s budget, it can stop you getting more than one marquee signing.”Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers betting tips: FA Cup preview, prediction and oddsSheffield Wednesday vs Newcastle United betting tips: FA Cup preview, prediction and odds
