Rodrigo admits that he is open to a move away from Benfica this summer amid reported interest from Liverpool and Arsenal.

The forward has been in impressive form this term, scoring 11 goals in 25 league appearances for the Portuguese side to help fire Benfica to the top of the table.

Of course there is interest in playing in other leagues

The 23-year-old, who spent part of the 2010-11 season on loan to Bolton Wanderers, has been touted as a potential target for both Arsenal and Liverpool in recent months as both of the Premier League sides look to bolster their attacking options.

And the Brazil-born striker has done little to dampen the speculation about his future by admitting that he would open to a switch to another league in the summer – although he concedes that staying at Benfica is also an option.

“I do not know what will happen next year,” Rodrigo told ESPN Brasil. “I really like Benfica.

“Of course there is interest in playing in other leagues, but playing at Benfica, the club that I like, would not be too bad either.”
