According to John Barnes, Liverpool will be the ideal club for Chelsea transfer target Declan Rice.

“Jordan Henderson and James Milner are at an age that they can’t play every week,” Barnes told BonusCodeBets.

“Midfield is the obvious place where we need to improve. Long-term that’s where we’re going to have to look to get some bodies in. The Wijnaldum, Fabinho types.

“Players like Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham are players that would fit into any team and fit into the type of players Liverpool want and need in midfield.

“Hard-working midfield players that can defend as well as break forward. Those are two for me that would fit exactly what we want.

“Any top four club in the Premier League would want Declan Rice. He would improve every top side in the league because he is the best defensive midfielder out there.

“I think that Liverpool would be ideal for him because he is the player that they actually need. So he knows that he will get a very important role on the team.

“But of course, Chelsea, Man United and Arsenal would also love to have him in their squad, so he will have a lot of options when he is going to pick his next club.”
