Ricardo Rodriguez has confirmed that he would be excited to join Arsenal.

The Wolfsburg left-back has been heavily linked with us for a week now and if people were going to put their money on one man coming to north London this summer, it would be him.

It looks as if someone is leaving and the chances are it’ll be Kieran Gibbs; although since, Rodriguez wouldn’t exactly be cheap (reportedly in the region of €25m), it’s unlikely that he would be playing back-up to Nacho Monreal, which makes me believe early speculation that the Spaniard could be looking to return to Spain sooner than we thought.


Granit Xhaka is great friends and compatriots with Rodriguez. He’s been pictured with him a couple of times since the rumours began to circulate so it was only a matter of time before the defender was asked about the speculation.

“That would be exciting, yes, especially because the room arrangement at Arsenal would be fixed as well,” Rodriquez revealed.

Well, there you have it kids. It seems as if we’re probably getting ourselves a shiny, new defender this summer.
