Guido Rodriguez news

Rodriguez still on Arsenal's radar

Arsenal are reportedly monitoring Real Betis midfielder Guido Rodriguez with a view to a potential transfer.

The Argentine was linked with the Gunners earlier this summer, but a deal did not materialise between the clubs.

The north London giants signed Albert Sambi Lokonga, and opted against pursuing another defensive midfielder.

They may be compelled to do so in January with Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny absent due to African Cup of Nations duty.

Granit Xhaka is currently out with a knee injury, and it is unclear whether the Swiss will be fit at the beginning of the New Year.

According to Fichajes, the Gunners are keeping tabs on Rodriguez, and could make an approach during the winter transfer window.

There is a release clause of around €60m on his existing contract, but the La Liga outfit could be convinced to sell him for €35m 

Betis could still be reluctant to lose Rodriguez mid-season as they are currently competing for a potential top-four spot in La Liga.
