Arsenal are still interested in signing Wolfsburg defender Ricardo Rodriguez, according to Tribal Football.

Arsene Wenger is believed to be a big fan of the defender and has been linked with the 23 year old on numerous occasions but a move is yet to materialize for unknown reasons.

With the long-term future of Kieran Gibbs at the Emirates in doubt, Rodriguez is believed to be on Wenger’s radar again.

According to Calcio Mercato, Arsenal are intensifying efforts to sign Rodriguez.

However we could face competition from a host of top clubs who are also interested in the player’s signature with the likes of Juventus, Inter Milan and Marseille all keeping tabs on his development.

The report suggests Wenger sees Rodriguez as a perfect replacement to Gibbs whose contract expires at the end of next season.

The current understudy to Monreal could decide to leave the Emirates in search of more playing time which will prompt Wenger to make a move for the Wolfsburg man.

I’m sure there are people like me who are already getting bored of this “Rodriguez to Arsenal rumor”. We have been “stepping up” our interest in the lad as far back as I can remember.

 I don’t believe Wenger is interested in Rodriguez anymore and may have turn his attentions to more promising players like Valencia’s Jose Gaya.. Personally I don’t think the Switzerland international is a top quality full back who Will be an upgrade to Gibbs.

He was up for sale in the summer but couldn’t secure a move, can we just ask ourselves “why?”. Simply because he is overrated and overpriced.

I know my opinion wouldn’t be a popular one but I think we can do better than spending huge cash on Rodriguez who will not improve us as a squad.

    We hope that is true and not just wishful thinking. Arsenal were monitoring Ricardo Rodriguez for two years . Ricardo Rodriguez is considered to be one of the top left backs in Europe and he will be an excellent addition to the team and squad . Hopefully Mr Wenger to be positive and take an immediate action .
