What a signing’… Alan Shearer now thinks Arsenal have made an absolute bargain buy

Alan Shearer has given his verdict on Arsenal and England international defensive midfielder Declan Rice.

The Newcastle United legend has said that Rice has been a bargain signing for Arsenal.
So, what has Alan Shearer said about Declan Rice? Let’s take a look.

Alan Shearer praises Arsenal and England star Declan Rice

Well, Alan Shearer has been raving about Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice on The Rest is Football podcast.

The Newcastle United legend and BBC Sport pundit believes that Rice has been a bargain signing for Arsenal.
The Gunners paid London and Premier League rivals West Ham United an initial transfer fee of £100 million for the 24-year-old (ESPN).
Shearer said about Rice on The Rest is Football podcast: “Declan Rice, what a signing. £100 million, people were discussing the fee, I think it has proven to be a bargain.
He is just a brilliant player. And for him to pop up and get the goal, it just makes such a difference.

“Particularly with Man City being beaten and then getting the three points. This week has been huge for Arsenal and for Liverpool.”

Declan Rice could help Arsenal win Premier League title

In my view, Declan Rice is one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League and has the potential to become world class.

I believe that the England international could help Arsenal win the Premier League title this season as well as make a huge impact in the UEFA Champions League.
And, let us not forget that Rice is only 24. He is not going to hit his peak for another three or four years. He is a leader.

Just imagine how good Rice will become when he is 27 or 28. It is scary.

Yes, £100 million is a lot of money, but I believe that Arsenal have signed a real gem in Rice.

The midfielder has scored three goals and given one assist in 15 Premier League matches for Arsenal this season.

Rice has also given one goal in five UEFA Champions League games for Mikel Arteta’s side this campaign.
