According to a report from Marca, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has given Jese Rodriguez a go-ahead to move away from the Santiago Bernebue if he wants to play regular first-team football.

Moreover, according to The Sun, the speculation of the Spaniard availability has alerted Arsenal and Liverpool, including some top European countries.

We are believe to be eyeing a move for the winger who has played five times for Spain’s under-21 side and Liverpool are believe to be keeping close target on him as well.

Without shortage of competition for places at Real, the Los Blanco boss Zidane cannot currently offer the Spaniard a starting spot at Bernabeu.

In addition, the return of Alvaro Morata from the Italian giant Juventus will surely only serve to push Rodriguez further down the Frenchman’s pecking order.

However, the boss is willing to listen to offers for him, he would instead, according to reports prefer to send the player out on loan.

The Spanish footballer made 28 top-flight appearances last term, scoring five goals and assisting seven as the Champions League winner finished just one point behind eventual champions Barcelona.

Jese has just one year left on his current contract with Real and the Spaniard is valued at around £10m by Transfermarkt.
