Pep Guardiola names Arsenal player every club would want to sign


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said every club in the Premier League would love to sign Arsenal’s Declan Rice.

City lost out in the race to sign Rice from West Ham last summer.

The Gunners broke their transfer record by agreeing to pay £105 million for the England international.

Rice has one on to justify the huge fee with a series of outstanding displays for Mikel Arteta’s men.

Up against the likes of Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva on Sunday, Rice will face arguably the toughest test of his Arsenal career to date.

Speaking to the media ahead of the game, Guardiola was asked about City’s failure to sign Rice and said: “I think all the teams in the Premier League would have [wanted to] sign Declan Rice.”
