Arsenal signed Declan Rice from West Ham United for a fee of £105 million and he is showing good form at the moment. But some analysts believe that it is still not good enough to compete for the championship with Manchester City.

Robbie Savage, former Leicester City midfielder who has turned himself into a famous game analyst, believes that Arsenal are not good enough to win the Premier League this season even though they spent money on Declan. Rice joins the team.

Mikel Arteta manages midfield overhaul The Gunners Newly acquired Kai Havertz from Chelsea for a fee of 65 million pounds, while spending 105 million pounds to bring in Rice to reinforce the army.

Despite the former West Ham star’s superb performance in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Manchester United last time out, Savage believes they are not good enough to lift the Premier League title.

“Signing Declan Rice for £105m is a really great business move for Arsenal. He doesn’t just play in a defensive midfield position. But he can also carry the ball forward and we saw that a couple of times against Manchester United where he got the ball and dribbled it through the heart of United. He can score goals, he’s a leader and he’s a good person. One person too.”

“From the outside you need players like him to make the team play better and he also adds quality to Arsenal.

“But even if Arsenal can grab Declan Rice to join the team. I don’t think they can win the league, simply because of Manchester City . If City don’t win I think Arsenal should, but they’ve been a bit unlucky.
