‘I was very nervous’

Declan Rice has admitted that he felt some pressure after making his £105million move from West Ham to Arsenal.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Rice said: “When the transfer was going through I was very nervous because of the price tag.

“It’s natural to think about that. You’re a human being bought for £105m, it doesn’t feel very normal.

“But that was because of what I’d done at West Ham, what they valued me at.

“When I signed for Arsenal I just thought, ‘I just need to be Declan Rice’, be myself, don’t be any different, everything will go smoothly.

“The first three weeks of pre-season were really tough in terms of the change.

“When you’re at a new job you start to feel really settled after a few weeks. That really feels the case now.

“In terms of the price tag, I don’t really think about it, I just play the games and try to play as well as possible.”
