Liverpool and Arsenal target Rodrigo admits he doesn't know where he'll be playing next season as speculation regarding his future at Benfica continues to gather pace.

TalkSPORT reports how the Brazilian-born striker has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, following an impressive season at Estadio da Luz.

Rodrigo has netted 11 goals in the Primeira Liga in 2013/14, playing an important role in Jorge Jesus's side.

His performances are understood to have caught the attention of Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers, as Arsenal and Liverpool both look to strengthen their striker options at the Emirates and Anfield during the summer.

However, complications surrounding Rodrigo's ownership could put pay to his chances of a big-money move to England, after Benfica sold the 23-year-old's economic rights to a private investment company in January.

"I do not know what will happen next year," admitted Rodrigo in an interview with ESPN Brasil. "I really like Benfica.

"Of course there is interest in playing in other leagues, but playing at Benfica, the club that I like, would not be too bad either."

Arsenal and Liverpool might be better off turning attention to alternative targets, with doubts still surrounding the long-term future of the Spanish star.
