Arsenal eye Argentine midfielder

Arsenal have enquired about the availability of Real Betis midfielder Guido Rodriguez.

That is according to reports in Spain who claim he has emerged as a potential target for Mikel Arteta in January as he looks to bolster his midfield options.

The Argentine, who is a graduate of the River Plate academy, is under contract at the Seville-based team until 2024, but they are prepared to let him go at the right price.

He only joined the La Liga side at the start of last year, having signed for a fee of just €3 million (£2.5 million) but he has quickly established a reputation for himself as one of the most solid performers in his position in the division.

An established international for his country with 20 senior caps, he helped Argentina win the Copa América this summer.

He is a holding midfielder with the ability both to shield the backline and break up the opposition play.

The Gunners already have a connection with Betis – right-back Hector Bellerín is on loan there this season.
