Arsenal have been in the last few weeks been linked with the signing of different left-backs and just last week, news emerged that we may be signing Wolfsburg’s Ricardo Rodriguez with reports claiming Arsenal are ready to activate the Switzerland international’s release clause.
Wenger reportedly wants the Bundesliga star as long term replacement for Nacho Monreal who is already 30 and may have just one or two more seasons with Arsenal and with Kieran Gibbs rumoured to be on his way to Liverpool, there is definitely a need for Rodriguez.
And what could be taken as a big hint, the player himself has hinted at the move. Speaking to Tagesanzeiger, a Swiss newspaper, Rodriguez confirmed there is sa saying of leaving Wolfsburg this summer. Saying leaving is not totally impossible.
Q: You share a room with Granit Xhaka in the national team. Is it a possibility to play at the same club in the near future?
A: (smirks) That would be exciting, yes, especially because the room arrangement at Arsenal would be fixed as well.
The player has been linked with a move to Real Madrid who reportedly want David Alaba and should they fail in their pursuit of Alaba, they will come in for Rodriguez.
