According to a French pundit, Rice’s attacking talents are being restricted by the lack of a holding player in the engine room. The Frenchman suggested that Arsenal should find a player to play in front of the center backs to give Rice the freedom to express himself.

He proposed the idea of playing with two midfielders, with Odegaard in front of Rice, allowing Rice to play a more attacking role. The French pundit suggested finding a player similar to N’Golo Kante, highlighting the successful partnership between Pogba and Kante as a central pair. However, Kante’s contract situation and recent fitness issues present a dilemma for Arsenal. The 30-year-old Kante is out of contract and eligible to leave on a free in 2025.

This raises the question of whether the club should consider cashing in this summer due to his fitness concerns. The situation is further complicated by potential developments around his club boss Arne Slot, which could hamper any potential move.
