Chris Sutton hails 'exceptional' West Ham star's Euro 2020 effort
Declan Rice was once again in superb form for England last night and former Chelsea and Celtic striker Chris Sutton was impressed.
Rice has become a focal point for the England team. Alongside Kalvin Phillips, his efforts in midfield have been lauded by his teammates and pundits alike.
The West Ham star is clearly a man in form. Indeed, the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United are both said to be tracking him.
West Ham, of course, will demand enormous money if they are to even entertain the idea of Rice leaving.
And Chris Sutton, who is a regular in the media circles in football, took to Twitter last night to give his thoughts on the Hammers star.
Praise for Rice is nothing new, to be honest. As covered by TBR this month, his England teammate, Jack Grealish, has also been impressed with the midfielder.
While West Ham are doing well under David Moyes, you do feel there is a sense of inevitability about Rice’s future.
How the Hammers can hang onto him is a mystery really. He’s been that good, that surely someone will come and pay the big money soon.
Rice will also fancy playing Champions League football. He’s proven himself this summer on the biggest stage. Logically, the next step is to do it week in, week out, with a very top club.
Unfortunately for West Ham, it does feel like Rice will eventually be moved on.
