Arsenal and West Ham are monitoring Real Betis midfielder, Guido Rodriguez. The 27-year-old is playing a crucial role under Pellegrini. He has started every game since July 2020.
According to Fichajes, many clubs are monitoring his situation but Arsenal and West Ham are leading the race.
The report states that West Ham is interested because they will need a replacement for Declan Rice. Rice has been linked to a move away from West Ham.
Can Arsenal make it to the top 6 this season?
The Gunners are unbeaten in their last 7 games. They displayed a great performance after beating Spurs. It was expected that they would lose but they turned the tables.
Speaking realistically the current team cannot provide consistent performances like this week in week out. Hence the club will focus more on their Premier League matches.
They have great talented youngsters who are the future of the club. These youngsters if given opportunities on a good platform can certainly shine for the club.
Arsenal can qualify for the Europa League but cannot go any further than that. The board and the manager Mikel Arteta have expressed interest in more talented youngsters.
The priority is to assemble a team full of talented youngsters who will contend for major titles.
Is the top 4 race entertaining only in the Premier League?
Often the media and the Premier League fans state that the premier league is the best in the world.
They state this because of the competition and good performances of smaller teams. But this does not only happen in the Premier League.
Other leagues for example La Liga, which is just behind PL in terms of fanbase and competition.
The 2020/21 season in La Liga was entertaining as Atletico Madrid won it on the last matchday. Both Real Madrid and Barcelona fell short of Simeone’s Madrid.
Even currently the first team in the table after 12 matches is Real Sociedad. Sevilla, Real Madrid are tied with 24 points each.
If this were to happen in the Premier League, these clubs would be overhyped. Real Sociedad even broke the record for most tickets sold during the pandemic.
Atletico Madrid has recovered 21 points from losing positions. They have won a considerable amount of points after scoring late winners in extra time.
The top 4 race gets more interesting as Barcelona are yet to appoint Xavi as manager. Under Xavi there will be many changes and the Culers can make a comeback.
