Hello and welcome to the Premier League for news and news of the day! Here are the best stories of the day surrounding the Premier League tonight!
Paul Merson thinks that big clubs could try to sign Declan Rice
The former man of Arsenal Paul Merson said Declan Rice, who decides to represent England, will make it more difficult for him to maintain it. The midfielder has recently announced that he will represent the Three Lions and not the Republic of Ireland.
He had already played three games for Ireland, but now he will play his job for England. And now, according to Merson, big clubs would like to want it and they could give it a try in the summer because it would make a lot more money in another club.
"I just think this could be a problem for West Ham. The bigger clubs will watch it coming at the end of the season and probably are now," he wrote.
"He signed a new contract but it's not worth a lot of money and he could definitely make a lot more money elsewhere." Some of the best teams would take it. "
He then appointed Arsenal and the two Manchester teams who need a midfielder and have opined that representing England adds more value to Rice.
"Manchester United and Arsenal both need a midfielder, and Manchester City also needs someone to come in for Fernandinho from time to time.
"Now he has chosen England, he has just added his value, everybody is looking for young English talents, he's ticking all the boxes."
Koulibaly speaks of US interest
The interest of Manchester United for Kalidou Koulibaly has been very well documented during this season. The former manager Jose Mourinho wanted to take him away and it seems that his dismissal could not put the Senegalese off the radar of the Red Devils.
Meanwhile, the player himself talked about the stories. He said he wanted to grow as a player at Napoli and he felt honored that so many teams are watching him. However, its main goal is to become one of the biggest.
"My future? I do not know if I'm one of the strongest defenders, I always try to do my best," said Koulibaly. "Since I'm here, I always try to grow up with Napoli, I have a lot of motivation to move forward and I want to keep doing it.
"I'm happy that many teams follow me, but I want to show on the field that I'm at the highest level and I want to show it in the future."
Bale in Milan
