Farewell Gibbs! Arsenal completes signing of £25m Rodriguez, medical booked

Before the close of the transfer window, there may be one or two surprise signings and so, you are required to brace yourself for the most probable shocker of the window.

According to report, Chelsea have joined Arsenal in the chase of Ricardo Rodriguez.

The Switzerland international is ready to leave the German club as they currently languish 12th in the Bundesliga table at the midway point of the season.

Arsenal and Chelsea have been linked with the 24-year-old as they are both in the market for a new left-back.

However, Marseille, according to L’Equipe, are making a move for Rodriguez too as they look to revamp their squad.

The French club are now backed by the billions of owner Frank McCourt and they are looking to splash the cash over the coming year.

They are already deep in negotiations for West Ham playmaker Dimitri Payet and Rodriguez has emerged as another top target too.

The defender is unlikely to come cheap, though, with Wolfsburg reportedly holding out for a fee of around £25m.
