According to The Sun on Sunday (print edition, page 59, June 3, 2018), Arsenal are interested in signing Rodrigo in the summer transfer window, but would the Gunners really be able to secure the services of Valencia striker with Tottenham Hotspur among the clubs claimed to want him?
The British tabloid has claimed that Rodrigo, who can operate as a winger or as a striker, is open to a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal manager Unai Emery reported to be weighing up a bid for Spain international, who would cost £50 million.
Everton, Tottenham and Brighton and Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in the 27-year-old, according to Calciomercato.com, and given the competition the Gunners would face, can they really sign the former Benfica star?
Given that Tottenham are in the Champions League, the North London outfit do look more attractive that the Gunners, but Rodrigo would have to play second fiddle at Spurs.
Moreover, one has to ask whether Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would really spend £50m on a player who would mostly be a substitute.
Everton are an ambitious club as well, but if the competition is from the Toffees and Brighton, then surely Arsenal would win it.
Working with Emery could also be appealing to Rodrigo. After all, the former Paris Saint-Germain manager is highly thought of him in Spain and would know much more about La Liga-based players than any of his peers, and would know how to get the best out of him.
