Wilshere on a mission to lure Rice to Arsenal


iT is no secret Arsenal want to sign Declan rice this summer: enter secret agent Jack Wilshere. rice and Wilshere formed a good relationsh­ip during their time playing together at West ham and have remained close. it has been pointed out to Sportsmail that Wilshere could well be a factor as rice decides his next destinatio­n. chelsea are interested, but without champions league football — as looks likely — rice will think twice about a return to stamford Bridge. Manchester United could also be an option for the England internatio­nal but Arsenal are believed to be in pole position. Wilshere, who is Arsenal’s Under 18s coach, remains a cult hero on the terraces here at the Emirates. if he can help bring rice across london, he will be held in even loftier esteem.
