Juventus and Inter Milan will reportedly rival Arsenal in the chase for Wolfsburg full-back Ricardo Rodriguez, while the Gunners are once again being linked with FC Porto midfielder Danilo.
According to “many reports in Italy” (h/t Calciomercato), Rodriguez is Juventus’ backup option in case the deal for FC Schalke’s Sead Kolasinac falls through. Inter are in dire need of a left-back and have also identified the Swiss international as a target.
The Gunners have long been linked with Rodriguez and unsuccessfully tried to sign him during the summer. The full-back commented on the transfer saga last week, telling Blick (h/t PA Sport, via Sky Sports): “I guess it was just meant to be this way. God wanted it this way.”
Nacho Monreal has enjoyed a fine season on the left wing so far, but the Spaniard has his limitations and can’t be considered the club’s long-term option, as he’s already 30 years old.
