Arsenal are considering making a shock dine-minute move for AC Milan’s left-back, Ricardo Rodriguez, according to the Daily Mail after Sead Kolasinac picked up a knee injury.
The issue wouldn’t be so bad if Nacho Monreal hadn’t returned with a slight knee problem of his own that has kept him out of pre-season so far.
He’s expected to return to full training with the team on Tuesday but Unai Emery has all but ruled him out of the season opener against City on Sunday.
Emery also admitted that his team are working with Ainsley Maitland-Niles so he can step into that position properly.
The Swiss defender Rodriguez has been linked with a move to Arsenal previously although those seemed to dry up back at the start of 2017.
AC Milan, according to the Daily Mail’s report, would not be keen on selling the 25-year-old who still has another three years left on his contract in Italy.
£30m could be required, an amount that seems rather excessive to cover a two-month injury.
Rodriguez can also play at centreback or left midfield if required.
