Gary Lineker was delighted with the 24-year-old Gunner’s goal

Gary Lineker praised Arsenal target Declan Rice for his opener for England in Thursday night’s 2-1 win over Italy.

The West Ham United captain once again impressed in the Three Lions’ midfield, prompting Jude Bellingham to sing his praises after the contest.

When a recent report indicated that Arsenal were planning to make a bid for Declan Rice in June, he showed himself ready again for England as Gary Lineker celebrated his goal against Italy.

Fabrizio Romano had claimed a few weeks ago that that’s £62,000 a week [Salary Sport] Mann had his sights set on an exit from the Hammers in the summer and was interested in the prospect of joining Mikel Arteta’s men.

Several Gooners have expressed their opinion that the Hammers legend, dubbed the ‘leader’ by Robbie Keane, would be a great signing for them next season.

“Great goal from Rice and the perfect start for England. It’s hard to imagine that we won’t win the Euros now,” he said tweeted.

Declan Rice to Emirates Stadium is a match made in heaven

After the praise Gary Lineker gave to England superstar Declan Rice against Italy, let’s quickly assess why a potential Arsenal transfer ticks all the boxes for all involved.

For starters, the Gunners could enlist a player capable of not only playing in place of the irreplaceable Thomas Partey, but possibly even surpassing him one day.

Additionally, Rice could be deployed right where Granit Xhaka is and perhaps see his most devastating form in a box-to-box role where his ball carrying ability shines brightest.

Third, the player would finally get a chance to compete in the Champions League, making the move sensible for both sides.
