Man City told to sign Declan Rice

Manchester City should try to beat rivals Manchester United to West Ham midfielder Declan Rice this summer.

That is the opinion of former Stoke striker and Republic of Ireland international Jonathan Walters.

“In my opinion he can go right to the top and without a shadow of a doubt he’s a target for the big teams, whether that be Manchester United or anyone else,” Walters explained.

“If I was Manchester City I would be looking at him because of the position that he plays where he can sit in front of that back four and do an unbelievable job.

“He’s available for the ball and right foot, left foot he deals with it. His passing is simple but he’s got a range.

“He covers a lot of ground and breaks up attacks. He can take players on.

“He is an ultimate player in that role and I’d be surprised if plenty of clubs aren’t in for him this summer.”
