I think he can do that [for Arsenal] and he seems to have that character and I believe he will be a huge player for Arsenal,” he added.Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has also put his weight behind Rice and insisted that Arsenal have the potential to win the 2023-24 Premier League after landing the midfielder.
