According to various media outlets in England, the Arsenal has ruled out the possibility of acquiring the services of Jude Bellingham in the summer transfer market and they have other midfielders in their sights to boost their rotation in the midfield area.
The Gunner team wants to strengthen its squad for next season with the aim of offering more variants to Mikel Arteta, who wants to put together a squad capable of fighting on all fronts. The flyers area is an area to be strengthened because they do not have a top-level rotation. Thomas Partey is elderly and Arteta wants a midfielder who can take his place.
Declan Rice, Arsenal’s true target
The name of Jude Bellingham began to sound with force due to his contractual situation, but Arsenal himself has ruled out the possibility of signing him due to his high price and because he is not a profile that fits what they are looking for.
On the other hand, the Gunner team is targeting Declan Rice. The English midfielder is a piece that fits perfectly with the team’s game idea and can fill the role of Thomas Partey. His price is lower than Bellingham’s and he has much more Premier League experience.
