The deal to sign Declan Rice has been in the pipeline for weeks, but Arsenal have finally concluded it
English Premier League club Arsenal have officially unveiled England international Declan Rice with Odumodublvck’s hit song “Declan Rice”, Soccernet.ng reports.
Odumodublvck’s track “Declan Rice” has been one of the top songs in the world since it was released in March 2023.
England international Rice also fell in love with the song and was pictured grooving to it with Odumodublvck when they met in London.
Rice has been on Arsenal’s radar since last season, and the North Londoners eventually agreed on a deal with West Ham worth £105million for the England international- a British transfer record.
Arsenal finally completed the transfer on Friday, the 14th of July, and on Saturday, they announced Rice’s signing.
The Gunners unveiled Rice in an Arsenal jersey, and Odumodublvck’s song “Declan Rice” played in the background.
