According to reports from Blick, Wolfsburg have confirmed Arsenal transfer target Ricardo Rodriguez plans to leave the club this summer.

The Switzerland international, who is currently showcasing his abilities at Euro 2016, has emerged as one of the top attacking full-backs in world football since signing from FC Zurich in January 2012.

Indeed, the 23-year-old is famed for his creative flair and potency from dead ball situations – the predominant source of his 20 goals in 157 appearances for Die Wolfe.

Kicker reported on Arsenal’s interest in Rodriguez last month, who could be signed as an upgrade on the Gunners’ current left-back Nacho Monreal.

Wolfsburg director Klaus Allofs has confirmed the 38-cap international will look to leave the club this summer, quoted by Blick as saying; “Rici has stated that his future is not with us. But we can live with this decision.”

The Swiss publication put Arsenal in the frame to activate Rodriguez’s £25million release clause, but also document rivaled interest from Real Madrid and Roma.
