Declan Rice, rather than players like Saka and Odegaard, has been Arsenal’s best player this season, according to Ferdinand’s official statement.
As we know the club from North London might not be as dominant as they were the previous year.
Although star players for Arsenal haven’t quite reached the peaks they did the previous season, thus far at least they are experiencing outcomes.
Declan Rice is Brilliant so far for Arsenal in this season
It’s debatable whether Declan Rice has been Arsenal’s best player thus far this season. But he has significantly improved since merging with the English club.
Praising the english international, Rio said: “Declan Rice, he’s been your best player this year, he’s been your best player,”
Prior to his £105 million transfer to the Emirates, Rice hadn’t ever hit the ball in the Champions League. Yet he’s adapted to life at a top Premier League team so smoothly.
He completed 57 passes per match and providing 2.2 key passes in each 90 minutes.
Although Rice had not yet demonstrated his abilities at the highest level, Arsenal took a chance when they signed him. And their choice to have the midfielder at the Emirates has proven as a right choice.
He is with Arsenal till for 2028. It will be a long time to serve for Gunners, in this journey he might be more matured.
So far Edu and Arteta are investing from the past. They signed many young stars for long term basis.
The way is too similar to Manchester City as they also started to invest on the club from 2009-2013. Now they have the most enlighten squad of the Premier League.
