Alan shearer says one Arsenal player is ‘not getting enough love’

Arsenal legend Alan shearer has heaped praise on Declan Rice and urged football fans to show him more love.

The England midfielder has been the best signing in the Premier League this season. He has been unbelievable for Arsenal, and Wright is beyond impressed with his quality.
Ian Wright says Arsenal star Declan Rice is not getting enough love

Arsenal signed Declan Rice from West Ham United in the summer in a £105 million deal (BBC).

There were a few people who felt the Gunners overpaid to get the Englishman. West Ham were even praised for making Arsenal spend as much as they did.
However, Rice’s performances over the last few months show that he is worth every penny. He has arguably been the best player in the Premier League this season, and he will only get better.

Ian Wright spoke about Rice on his podcast yesterday. He mentioned how people criticised the midfielder’s price tag in the summer, much more than what was said about Chelsea signing Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo – who both cost more than the Arsenal number 41.

Wright then claimed Rice just doesn’t get enough love.
When asked what’s different about Arsenal this season compared to last, he said on Wrighty’s House: “Declan Rice! I just feel that Declan Rice is the driving force of everything that we’re doing. Honestly.

“I mentioned Caicedo and Enzo, the amount of s–t we were getting (about spending £100m on Rice). They spent £100m for Caicedo and £100m for Enzo and that was fine, but the way they came for him (Rice), when you look at that man how he has played. Not only just for us, but his time before he left West Ham, the years he played, we’re talking 8 or 9/10.

“He has come here to Arsenal, and it’s exactly the same. He just drives us forward, he just keeps us going. The way he’s just marshalling everything, there is no way none of our Arsenal fans expected him to be this good.

“He’s just another level, especially when you look at what they’ve paid for those two guys. He’s not getting enough love!”
Declan Rice can become the best midfielder in the world

Arsenal fans absolutely love Declan Rice, but Ian Wright is right, he deserves more love from the neutrals.

The 24-year-old is already one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. Only Rodri is on the same level as him or slightly better, but Rice is still far away from his prime.

When he gets to 27 or 28 years old, we are convinced the Arsenal man will be the best midfielder in the world, and £105 million will look like an absolute bargain at that point.

Arsenal have a great chance of winning the Premier League this season. If Rice can stay fit and perform like he has done over the last few months, it will be difficult for any club to stop them.
