West Ham star Declan Rice compared to Steven Gerrard by Teddy Sheringham

Former West Ham forward Teddy Sheringham has likened Declan Rice to Steven Gerrard and says his price tag is worth £160m.

The 23-year-old has been integral to West Ham’s success over the past two seasons, beating relegation in 2019/20, before starring as David Moyes’ men finished sixth in the Premier League last campaign and reached the Europa League groups.

Rice’s stock has continued to skyrocket as he formed an impressive midfield partnership with Kalvin Phillips as England reached the final of Euro 2020 in the summer, and he continues to be a mainstay in Gareth Southgate’s Three Lion first-team.

Given his impressive form, both at club and international level, ex-West Ham and England striker Sheringham believes any club willing to sign the midfield stalwart would have to make him football’s third-most expensive player ever, after Neymar (£198m) and Kylian Mbappe (£163m).

“I have to liken him to Steven Gerrard,” Sheringham said to Genting Casino. “Not many players can eat up the ground like Declan – Gerrard used to do exactly the same, he used to overpower people in midfield.

“Add that to his passing ability, his understanding of the game, his knowledge of the game, he’s obviously getting led by Mark Noble. His desire, you can see how he loves the game and wants to get better.

“For me, he’s up there with the top players in the world in midfield at the moment, there’s no denying that. I think [head coach David] Moyes said something about him being a £100 million player, didn’t he?

“I’d hold on to him and say, ‘I want more than that, this player’s unbelievable, he’s better than that. If you really want this guy you’re going to have to break the bank and show me you think of him as much as I do, because I’m not letting him go for £100 million.’

“When the best centre forward in the world was up for sale in the summer, Tottenham wanted £200 million for him, the other clubs didn’t have that valuation. I’m going up to 150, 160 for Declan Rice.”
