Serie A giants AC Milan have confirmed they expect to secure the signing of reported Liverpool and Arsenal target Ricardo Rodriguez from Wolfsburg.
The Swiss left-back has always wished for interest from Premier League sides for a number of years after establishing a good reputation for himself in Germany, but Milan have claimed on Twitter that they have won the race to sign him.
Upon his arrival in Milan to complete the deal, Rodriguez told reporters: “I am very happy to be here. I have not yet spoken to [manager Vincenzo] Montella. Forza Milan!”
This is another great move in a vey busy summer for Milan, who are hoping to use money from new Chinese investors to restore them to the upper echelons of Serie A.
Villarreal centre-back Mateo Musacchip and Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie have already arrived, while Montella has also signed a new deal with the club.
