West Ham fans will be expecting the worst but hoping for the best in terms of Declan Rice’s future at the London Stadium, but if he does remain with the Hammers then an ideal partner for him could be Yangel Herrera, according to La Liga expert, Euan McTear.
Who should Rice join?
It would be a mouthwatering partnership for Hammers fans to think about, and if the Venezualan can have a holding midfielder alongside him it may unlock his attacking potential, according to McTear, who exclusively gave an insight into Herrera to This is Futbol:
“I think that Herrera’s first instinct is always to pass it forward and run forward as he is that kind of player so, if he’s alongside someone who can protect him a bit then that would be perfect.
“If he was able to have some time to build and form a partnership with Rice then that could be pretty good.”
West Ham will be confident that Rice will want to stay at least one more season at the London Stadium so he can lead the Hammers out as captain in the Europa League.
