LIVERPOOL AND DECLAN RICE TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Liverpool are interested in signing Declan Rice. The report also claims that the signing is approved by manager Jurgen Klopp. Hence, the Reds are ready to explore a deal in the summer transfer window. The report also claims that the Liverpool are not the only side interested in a deal. Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Arsenal have also shown interest.
However, it will take a mega bid for West Ham to sell their best player. The report also claims that Hammers will not ask below 86 million for the midfielder. Declan Rice has a contract till the summer of 2024 with the Hammers. Therefore, the Hammers are also trying their best to convince the England midfielder to sign a contract extension.
THE REDS NEED A MIDFIELDER LIKE HIM IN THE SUMMER TRANSFER WINDOW
Liverpool do need to sign a midfielder in the summer transfer window. Their current midfielders are starting to age now. They are also having frequent injury issues. The report also claims that the loan deal of Arthur Melo is going to complete at the end of the season. Another reason is Jurgen Klopp is also open to selling Naby Kieta and Alex-Oxlade Chamberlin.
Therefore, the sign of Declan Rice makes much more sense. The potential signing of Rice would improve the quality of their starting line-up. He would straightaway replace Jordan Henderson in the starting line-up. The midfielder will help Liverpool go forward and defend. Hence, he would be a complete midfielder signing for the Premier League giants.
Liverpool needs to improve their squad in the upcoming transfer windows to challenge for titles in the future seasons. The investment in the squad will also keep Jurgen Klopp and the fans happy. Hence, the situation of Declan Rice should be an interesting one.
