Guido Rodriguez’s time at Real Betis could soon end as a whole host of clubs are lining up to sign him.
The latest update from Spain suggests that Chelsea are eyeing move for Guido Rodriguez.
The Argentina international was signed by Real Betis in January 2020 from Espanyol for a fee of 3 million euros. The 28-year-old has a contract until 2024 with the club.
The midfielder has banged in 2 goals and provided 3 assists in 47 matches last term on all fronts.
He will turn 29 next season but still has a lot to offer at the top level.
Rodriguez has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in 24 senior appearances for the Argentina national team.
His impressive performances last season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Thomas Tuchel is eager to add a midfielder to the squad. He wants an experienced player that can be a leader on and off the pitch for him. The report claims that Chelsea manager has extensively scouted Rodriguez and is considering a move for the midfielder.
Tuchel is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.
Guido Rodriguez is a skilled midfielder who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
According to the report, “Real Betis midfielder Guido Rodriguez is on the radar of Chelsea. Estadio Deportivo says Chelsea have identified Rodriguez as a potential replacement for N’Golo Kante. Kante’s been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer as he enters the final year of his contract. And the Blues are preparing for life without their midfield engine. Rodriguez will be able to fill Kante’s boots if he decides to join Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal revolution.”

If Chelsea are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete.
Real Betis would be wise to keep the Argentina international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.
