Arsenal target looking more likely by the day!
Whilst Arsenal fans remain fearful of what may happen to one of their current fullbacks in the form of Hector Bellerin, at least there has been a big boost from a class defender who could be joining the club!
We must all surely know the score on Ricardo Rodriguez by now! He’s a Swiss international left back currently playing his trade out in Germany with Wolfsburg. But Rodriguez is now looking for a move away from the club, with Arsenal being one of many suitors.
Rodriguez has already outlined his desire to play with Swiss international teammate Granit Xhaka at club level and that in itself gave Arsenal fans a major boost. Now the defender has gone one step further by confirming that he is more than likely to move on this summer! Let’s hope The Lord Bendtner had a few words with Rodriguez before the former Gunner got the boot out of Wolfsburg!
Speaking about a future transfer, Rodriguez confirmed his current situation to the media. In a report that was picked up by the Metro, Rodriguez was quoted saying: ‘It’s all open. Nor is it impossible to continue to play in Wolfsburg, even if it is currently unrealistic.’
It may not be the most certain levels of assurance but it seems like he definitely knows where he wants to be playing next season. Even the Sporting Director Klaus Allofs seems resigned to losing one of their star players, saying: ‘The agreement was indeed made with Ricardo. As we have recently entertained, was clear: His idea is to leave us.’
It is a positive boost for the Gunners on a day that has surrounded nothing but bad news, especially concerning reports of a Jamie Vardy snub and a Hector Bellerin tap up from Barcelona. Hopefully this is the only story out of the three that turns out to be the truth!
