Arsenal ‘increasingly likely’ to make a move for Real Betis’ Guido Rodriguez

Arsenal ‘increasingly likely’ to make a move for Real Betis’ Guido Rodriguez

Who is Guido Rodriguez?

Guido Rodriguez joined Spanish outfit Real Betis from Mexican side Club America in January of 2020, for a fee believed to be around €3m.

Rodriguez has since become a key figure in Betis’ midfield, notching 48 appearances across all competitions, including 33 so far this term.

The Argentine is a defensive midfielder by trade, but can also play slightly further forward.

Arsenal eyeing Guido Rodriguez

Following an impressive start to life at the Benito Villamarín, Rodriguez now appears to have caught the eye of a Premier League side.

Recent reports stemming from Spain suggested that Arsenal intend to ‘push hard this summer’ to sign Rodriguez.

With Dani Ceballos set to return to Real Madrid, and Mohamed Elneny not exactly a top-quality midfielder, it would make sense for the Gunners to target reinforcements in the middle of the park.

Rodriguez himself was drawn on his links to Arsenal back in March, but gave little away:

“I saw it because friends from Argentina asked me, but I told them that I knew the same as them. I am the protagonist because I am in the news but today, I do not know more or less than you who also saw it.”

Fresh reports emerging this weekend, though, assure that the north Londoners remain keen on the Betis star.

According to Sport Witness, citing Spanish outlet El Desmarque, Arsenal are looking increasingly likely to make a move for Rodriguez this summer.

It is added that Betis will need to sell to balance their books ahead of next season, and one name touted to bring in a decent sum is Rodriguez.

The report goes on to explain that the midfielder has a release clause worth €80m, but Betis want to do a ‘great deal’ with Arsenal, hinting that he could be available for a lower sum.
