Kieran Tierney shares what Declan Rice has already told him about Arsenal in chat last week

In a recent conversation, Kieran Tierney revealed that Declan Rice has expressed his quick adjustment to life at Arsenal.

 According to Tierney, Rice shared his initial impressions of the club with him during their chat last week. Following a much-awaited transfer to North London, Arsenal secured Rice’s services for £105 million from West Ham.

 Despite joining the team just over a week ago, the 24-year-old has already participated in two pre-season friendlies and has seamlessly integrated into Mikel Arteta’s squad. Rice confided in Tierney that he already feels like he’s been a part of the club for a considerable period.

What Rice has told Tierney about Arsenal

“Declan actually said the other day he feels like he’s been here for so long,” Tierney told The Athletic.

“It’s such a close group, great team-mates, great staff so I think they’re all loving it (the new players). We’ve had a few songs. Declan gave us Ice, Ice Baby as he always does.

“They’ve integrated really well and we’ve done team activities together. It’s been just what the new boys needed.”

Not surprisingly, Rice has adapted quickly to life in North London, thanks to Mikel Arteta’s efforts in creating a tightly-knit team over the last few seasons.

The former West Ham captain is anticipated to make a significant impact on Arsenal in the upcoming season, and his leadership qualities will be crucial for Arteta’s future plans.

Although Arsenal faced a 2-0 defeat against Manchester United in their pre-season match, it’s understandable that Rice was relatively subdued during the game as he is still getting accustomed to the new Arsenal system.

This season, the Gunners appear to be introducing a fresh and revamped midfield, with the additions of Rice and Kai Havertz.
