Inter Milan have made a £13m bid for Arsenal target Ricardo Rodriguez, according to reports.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Ricardo Rodriguez for well over two years and reports in December claimed he is one of the few players on Wenger’s wish list to strengthen the defense this summer.
According to Italian outlet Calcio Mercato via the Daily Star, Inter Milan have lined up a plan to sign the defender.
The Serie A giants are keen to overhaul their playing squad in the summer and they have made Rodriguez a top target.
However, they are reluctant to pay his £19m release club and are only willing to stump up £13m plus add ons.
The defender is contracted to Wolfsburg until 2019 and his club are open to selling him for the right price.
The report claims Arsenal and Chelsea will rival Inter for Rodriguez but the Serie A giants are confident of beating the Premier League duo to the defender’s services.
Arsenal’s interest in Rodriguez is something i seriously doubt because if really we were interested, I see no reason why we haven’t signed him all these years.
It’s more likely we are being linked with him again because of our interest in the past. We will have to wait until the summer to know for sure if he is still one of our target or not.
