Arsenal seek late move to sign 25-year-old, £30m enough for deal

Arsenal have reportedly identified another defensive target as the summer transfer window edges closer to its deadline.

New manager Unai Emery is only days away from his first competitive game in charge of the team after replacing Arsene Wenger back in May.

The Spaniard has recognized the fact that his side needs further strengthening at the back, if a return to the Champions League is to be secured.

Thus, the Gunners are now considering a move to sign Ricardo Rodriguez, according to the Daily Mail.

The 25-year-old was frequently linked with an Arsenal switch before he ended up moving to the Serie A.

AC Milan are reportedly asking for £30million for Rodriguez, who was a member of the Switzerland squad which reached the first knock-out round of the 2018 World Cup, earlier this summer.

With Sead Kolasinac now sidelined for several weeks, the Gunners have a shortage of options at left-back ahead of the new season.
