Arsenal plan Real midfielder raid

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are maintaining a watching brief on Real Madrid midfielder Jose Rodriguez with a view to a potential move, reports Spanish publication Marca.

The talented teenager impressed the Gunners' chief scout in Spain, Francisco Cagigao during the U17 world club championship in Madrid in the summer - a competition he was voted player of the tournament.

Rodriguez recently signed a new contract with Real, but that won't deter Arsene Wenger from attempting to pinch another up-and-coming star from under the noses of one of La Liga's biggest clubs.

The Arsenal boss has a reputation for nurturing promising youngsters and developing them into world-class players - as he did with former captain Cesc Fabregas, who returned to his boyhood club Barcelona in the summer.

Wenger signed Jon Miquel Toral and Hector Bellerin, who both arrived at the Emirates Stadium from Camp Nou in August, and are widely tipped for bright futures in north London.

Meanwhile young Spaniard Ignasi Miquel - another product of the Gunners youth system is starting to make his mark in the first-team, and Rodriguez has been identified as the next player to make the move to Arsenal.
