ARSENAL AND DECLAN RICE TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are leading the race for the signature of Declan Rice in the summer transfer window. They are also leading the race for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo. Hence, it looks like the Gunners are going to spend big again in the next summer transfer window. This also means that the Gunners will hope to sell Albert Sambi Lokonga in the next summer transfer window. At the moment, the Belgian midfielder is on loan with Premier League side Crystal Palace.
Hence, Arsenal will hope that Lokonga performs well under former player and current Palace manager Patrick Viera. The performances of the midfielder in the second half of the season will determine his performances. If he performs, the Gunners can ask for a high valuation transfer fee. The high potential transfer fee will also help fund their next summer transfer window.

A number of Gunners fans have also noticed that Rice immediately likes the post of Bukayo Saka on the social media. This also includes photos of Saka in Arsenal shirt.
Adrian Clarke further said, “I can’t reveal my source,”. “But I do know that Declan Rice has been sounding out people connected with Arsenal in regards to, ‘What’s it like there? What’s it really like?’, so that sounds like a positive.” Hence, it is clear that Declan Rice is aware of the growing interest of Arsenal in his talent. A number of reports also claims that the Gunners are not the only team in the race. It claims that Chelsea and Manchester United are also monitoring the situation closely.
