Arsenal target, Ricardo Rodriguez, is set to leave Wolfsburg following confirmation from their sporting direction, Klaus Allofs.

The left-back has been thought to be leaving the Bundesliga club for a number of weeks now and we’ve been heavily rumoured to be the Switzerland international’s next destination. Rodriguez has been pictured with our newest signing and bestie, Granit Xhaka, more than once and has even said he would be excited to join us.

Following the Jamie Vardy news, the rumours surrounding a move for the defender calmed down a bit but it still seems we’ll be moving for him, considering Allofs has confirmed to Blick that he’s definitely leaving Wolfsburg.

“Rici has stated that his future is not with us,” Allofs said to the Swiss publication.

“But we can live with this decision.”

The development isn’t anything massively new considering Allofs has insinuated the player is leaving already, and Rodriguez is practically parading around France in Xhaka’s Arsenal kit already but it does show that negotiations are probably going in the right direction, despite the Euros now being in full swing.

Another fantastic edition to the squad so early in the window would be brilliant.
