Arsenal are looking like they will still be able to land Ricardo Rodriguez from Wolfsburg for a fee less than his now-expired €25 million release clause. Reports claim the player is ready to leave the club this summer which could see Wolfsburg been forced to accept a lower bid than the release.
According to from the German outlet Blick, it claimed it is “impossible” for the Bundesliga side to keep hold on the left-back this summer. This means the German media is certain that the Switzerland international will certainly leave the Bundesliga club this summer for new pastures.
The 23-year-old may have been hit and miss in a Wolfsburg team that struggled last term, but anyone who has followed his career in the last few years will agree he is a truly classy defender, someone Arsenal could do with in their team. A big upgrade on Kieran Gibbs and a worthy competition for Nacho Monreal.
The personal is said to have agreed personal terms with Arsenal ahead of the deal and all that’s left is for both Arsenal and his current club Wolfsburg to agree a transfer fee. And for him to undergo a medical.
