The next seven days are set to be interesting for Arsenal fans, even if there is no more developments on the striker situation at Arsenal following the transfer snub from the Leicester City and England star Jamie Vardy. Instead we should definitely discover the truth about one of the many Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds of the football media this summer.
It may not be seen as a big priority by many Arsenal fans but the left back position is one of those that may be due for some changes at our club, with Kieran Gibbs rumoured to be set for a transfer away in order to get the regular game time he has been denied by Nacho Monreal in recent years.
The player most likely to replace him, apparently, is Ricardo Rodriguez, the Switzerland international team mate of our new midfield star Granit Xhaka. The talented 23-year old already has 40 international caps and has been very impressive for the Swiss at Euro 2016 so far although we have not really seen him tested too much on the defensive side of things yet.
The reason I expect to know in the next week whether he will be an Arsenal player next season is that his release clause with the Bundesliga club Wolfsburg runs out next Friday and as reported by Metro their sporting director Klaus Allofs has made it clear that the price will only go up after that.
Wolfsburg are tough negotiators and Arsene Wenger knows this so if he wants Rodriguez he will have to move quickly. Do you think this transfer will happen Gooners, and would you be happy if it did?
