Journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that Arsenal need to move fast if they want to sign West Ham star Declan Rice in the summer transfer window.

Rice is Gunners’ top transfer target this summer and it’s moving quite smoothly for them to get this deal done. As per reports, Arsenal are now in prime to sign the midfielder.

However, speaking on Here We Go Podcast, Arsenal needs to act fast, claiming that others club, such as Manchester United, could enter the race. This can be worrying signs for Gunners.

Romano shares his views on Arsenal and Rice :-

“I really hope for Arsenal fans that this is fast. Sometimes for Arsenal, and it’s not about Edu or Arteta, it’s about the owners, sometimes to do big signings you need the approval of the owners. We have seen in the past with the Mykhaylo Mudryk deal and the Gabriel Jesus deal other clubs tried to come in at the end like Tottenham and Chelsea, Arsenal protected that with Edu and his Brazilian connections.

“Sometimes Arsenal are too slow due to the owners when it comes to big names. In this case they have to be fast, the timing is going to be crucial. We don’t know what will happen with Manchester United, maybe next week they will have new owners and who knows what happens? Maybe they enter the situation where their presence is unexpected. Being fast in this moment of the market is absolutely important.”

Arsenal need to accelerate things to get this done to avoid a transfer hijack. Last time in January, Chelsea lured Mykhailo Mudryk away and Gunners needs to avoid the same scenario here.

However, there are still some uncertainties regarding the deal for Arsenal.
