Arsenal are keeping tabs on Real Betis defensive midfielder Guido Rodriguez, according to a report in Spain.

Spanish media outlet Marca is reporting that Rodriguez has seen his stock rise since the Argentina international moved to Real Betis from Mexican outfit Club America in 2019.

The same article states that Real Betis consider Rodriguez to be one of their most valuable assets alongside another reported Arsenal target Nabil Fekir.

According to the same story, Arsenal have shown the most interest in the 27-year-old after tracking Rodriguez throughout the 2020-21 La Liga campaign.

Marca expect interest to grow in the Argentina international after he got on the score-sheet in 1-0 win over Uruguay in the Copa America group stage at the weekend.

The media outlet report that Real Betis are in a strong position given that Rodriguez has three years left to run on his current deal at the Spanish outfit.

The Spanish paper claims that Rodriguez has a £68m contract release clause in his current deal with Real Betis.

Arsenal are in the market to sign a defensive midfielder this summer, with Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira all expected to leave the north London club in the current transfer window.

The Gunners finished in eighth spot in the Premier League last term.
