Arsenal could reportedly make an audacious swoop to sign Real Madrid star Rodrygo this summer, as per a recent report.

After joining Los Blancos from Brazilian side Santos, the 23-year-old has established himself as a key player in Carlo Ancelotti’s starting eleven in recent times.

The South American has been enjoying a promising campaign this term, scoring 13 goals and registering eight assists in 41 appearances in all competitions.

However, according to the report by Defensa Central(via Sport), if Real Madrid sign Kylian Mbappe – who has heavily been linked with a move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in recent times, then they could cash-in on Rodrygo during the off-season.

The report further claims that Arsenal are interested in signing the Brazilian and they could go ‘offensive’ to acquire his service ahead of next season. It has also been stated that Real Madrid could demand at least £85m to sell their star man so Arsenal will have to break the bank to secure his signature.

Rodrygo to Arsenal

However, the report says that Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City are also planning to sign the forward if Real Madrid cash-in on him so the North London club are set to face tough competition from their rivals in getting any potential deal done for him.

The South American is a versatile player as he can play anywhere across the frontline. He is technically sound, can dribble past opposition defenders in tight areas, has the ability to play threading passes between the lines, can create opportunities for fellow attackers, has the efficiency of finishing off his chances and also works hard without possession.

Rodrygo is a top-class forward and possesses the potential to become one of the best players in the world in future. With Arsenal lacking depth in their flanks to support Bukayo Saka, the Real Madrid star would be an excellent option to reinforce their frontline if they purchase him.

However, it is going to be interesting to see whether the North London club can eventually manage to lure the forward to the Emirates Stadium should Real Madrid decide to sell him in the upcoming transfer window.
