Arsenal learn €30 Million asking price for Copa America winner

Real Betis midfielder Guido Rodriguez is available for a lowly €30 Million this summer, with Arsenal having been linked with a move in recent months.

The 27 year-old has been an impressive performer since joining the La Liga club from Club America 18 months ago, and is already being linked with another move to a bigger club.

Gianluca Di Marzio has now claimed that he is available for a €30 Million fee as his current side look to reinvest that money into other areas of the team, with their finances not in the best position at present.

While Arsenal have been linked with his signature, they do appear to be closing in on the signature of Albert Sambi Lokonga at present, although with Dani Ceballos having already left the club after his second consecutive loan spell with the club, and with Granit Xhaka strongly linked with an exit, there is definitely room in the squad for more central options.

Guido would represent the more defensive of our recent targets, as well as representing the oldest of those linked with our midfield role, two characteristics that could well be positives, while at 27 he definitely cannot be considered old.

Rodriguez just helped Argentina to win their first Copa America title since 1993, and could well prove to be a shrew buy if we could get it over the line.

    I would take a pass; won’t solve attacking woes, and little to no resale value. We aren’t going to be competing for title or top 4, so we need to keep an eye on the future also.

    Tuen would make better business; younger, captain, contributes on offense & defense, and can still improve further.

      Agree. Although must admit I’m coming from a place of ignorance on both players having never seen them play – both look great on YouTube though 😏Just think the Dutch player fits our current profile better since neither puts us over the top – younger, leader, Arsenal fan, cheaper.

    Guido is a very good player we need steel in CM midfield and Guido is a good defensive midfielder. EPL. is very physical and T. Pathey seem injury prone. In AM we have S. Roe and then if we can get one more.
    Though we are not competing for top4 but we shouldn’t perform lower than top6 since we are not going to be in Europe. Anything less than top6 is actually a failure.
    I am tired of rumors without any major signings. Must Arsenal always wait till latter end of transfer market to sign players?
