Arsenal have been linked with a number of left-backs recently, and last week the name of Ricardo Rodriguez came to the fore.
The 23 year old Swiss international currently plays for Wolfsburg, and Arseblog News is aware that there’s definite contact between the player and the club – although to what level we’re not sure.
In today’s edition of Tagesanzeiger, a Swiss newspaper, Rodriguez talks about his future and says that remaining at Wolfsburg next season is ‘not impossible but unrealistic.”
Then there’s a question about his international colleague and room mate, Granit Xhaka, who signed for the Gunners last month.
Q: You share a room with Granit Xhaka in the national team. Is it a possibility to play at the same club in the near future?
A: (smirks) That would be exciting, yes, especially because the room arrangement at Arsenal would be fixed as well.
He says he’s focusing on the European Championships, and isn’t stresseed out about the potential destinations he’s linked to – which also include Real Madrid, Dortmund and Liverpool.
Is that because he knows he’s already signing for Arsenal? Or is he just a really chilled out guy? We’ll find out in due course.
Poo-o-Meter solidifying on this one now.
Thanks to Florian for the heads-up and translation.
