WHAT HAPPENED? With his price tag, Rice has also attracted a lot of criticism including a few harsh words from the former Liverpool man, who claimed this month that the midfielder needs to 'do more' to try and help Arsenal. Souness has now contrasted Rice's experience as a high-priced midfielder to his own transfer to Liverpool in 1978, and he believes he will flourish in North London.

WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to The Daily Mail, he said: 'It's not Declan's fault that someone has paid £105m for him. He has to live with that. I had that when I was a player I was a record transfer between two English clubs. I didn't ask for that fee but I dealt with it, and I'm sure Declan will too.

"I think he should get more goals. He averages two goals a season and two assists a season, that's not enough. He's joined a very good team, a great football club, I would expect, if I was managing him, for him to chip in with more goals and be more creative. It's not a criticism, if you've got anything about you, you don't turn up for work and be happy with your lot. You're looking to improve every day. And that's what the great players do, they want to learn something new every single day."
