Rice, for one, would prefer a move to Arsenal over City. But David James believes that City will be the ideal fit for Rice.

He said:

“Declan Rice is top-drawer and Man City are the best team in Europe, probably going to be the best team in the world in a few months after they win the World Club Championship and if Declan Rice is part of that its because he deserves to be so all the best to him if it happens.

“Why would he want to play for Arsenal? One team’s a European, FA Cup, Premier League champions, the other is none.”
