Arsenal are interested in Benfica starlet Rodrigo, and could make a £28m bid for his services, reports the Mirror.
However, newly rich Inter Milan and Premier League rivals Liverpool are also interested in the 23-year-old Spaniard’s services.
According to the report, Arsenal are willing to meet Rodrigo’s excessive valuation, which seems astronomical. Rodrigo has scored 15 goals this term so far in all competitions, but a £28m price tag is usually reserved for proven international players.
The Gunners though are desperate for attacking additions in the summer, with only Yaya Sanogo and the soon to be out of contract Nicklas Bendtner available as backup to Olivier Giroud right now.
Rodrigo can play anywhere along the front line, and his versatility in attack makes him an attractive transfer option.
He has Premier League experience, having spent a season on loan with Bolton when he was a fledgling pro, although his reputation and his experience are both massively enhanced now.
