Fabrizio Romano lauded Arsenal following their impressive 1-0 victory against Manchester City, highlighting the performance of their recent acquisition, Declan Rice.
Rice’s transition from West Ham United to Arsenal was one of the summer transfer window’s standout deals.
Notably, this was also the most significant financial outlay for Arsenal to date. In his column for the Daily Briefing,
Romano underscored Rice’s commanding display, emphasizing that such performances were the very reason Arsenal pursued the 24-year-old Englishman.
Arsenal supporters have been notably pleased with Rice’s immediate and consistent impact.
Not only did he play a pivotal role in the recent win against Manchester City, but he was also instrumental in their 3-1 triumph over Manchester United earlier in September.
Romano expressed his admiration for Rice’s recent performance against Manchester City.
“Declan Rice’s display yesterday was extraordinary. It accentuated the rationale behind Arsenal’s acquisition — to elevate their performance this season,” Romano noted.
He further added, “The decision to bring Rice onboard was vital both on the field and off.
Beyond his evident skills, his inclusion symbolizes Arsenal’s ambition.
This win over City, given their past challenges against them, signifies a shift in their approach and mentality.”
In related Arsenal news, Romano hinted at the club’s growing interest in Wolves winger, Pedro Neto.
