Share

Premier League side Arsenal are believed to be keeping tabs on Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo, with the Gunners set to reinforce their defence this summer.

MR2 B Marcos Rojo heading to Arsenal in the summer?

We had earlier reported that Liverpool and Manchester United had sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old Argentine, who can play both as a centre-back and a left-back.

However Arsenal are now believed to have been weighing up bids to land him in the summer. Rojo has been an integral part of the Sporting Lisbon side who are currently in second position in the Portuguese League table.

Portuguese journalist Jan Hagen confirmed the interest in Twitter:

Rojo could replace Belgian defender Thomas Vermalen at the Emirates, who is attracting interest from Italian side Napoli. It is believed that manager Rafa Benitez is keen on bringing the out of favour defender at the Sao Paolo in the summer.

Italian journalist David Amoyal confirmed the Partenopei are keen on the Belgian.

  1. He kind of looks like Aguero?

  2. It’s lie arsenal can not buy any player, it is rather usless.

  3. Arsenal always speculate but don’t buy.who don’t know wenger he keeps doing this year after year. I won’t be surprise if he does not buy.He got the oppourtunity to buy all the best players but never did. For me am fed up with him.

  4. Wenger will never speculate such lies, this is the work of the media. Do not even point your finger at Wenger, the media is to blame for all the noise about Arsenal. They always create stories about Arsenal buying so and so. If it was true then everyday Arsenal would buy 10 players, because everyday it is the same story Arsenal is buying so and so, but nothing happens.

  5. Wenger a specialist failure he will not buy any player even with the warchest of £100m he i too arrogant for believing much in his self

  6. wenger will never buy agood player like suarez even if he is given £200m.

  7. Y’all be hating on Arsenal and Wenger

  8. why are we alwayz buying cheap second hand strikers? What happend 2 quality and class? Why Cant we find proven goal scorers? Or its someone sleeping on his job for huge bonuses on less expenditure come end of the season? Or its the fact that my manager’s mind is tired, if so he needs rest if not it might be the fact that his tactics hv hit the sealing and if so its tym he walks.
