Tensions between Gunners and Liverpool fans here in The Football Transfer Tavern are set to be on high as the two clubs are set to battle it out to sign a Spanish star who looks destined to leave.
Spanish paper, Marca (via Team Talk) have reported that Real Madrid are prepared to listen to offers for attacking midfielder, Jese Rodriguez.
The 23-year-old, who graduated from the Galacticos’ academy, has found it – quite understandably – difficult to make a spot in the first team his own, starting only 7 games last season having been used as a sub regularly.
The Spanish international turned pop star, having released his debut single recently (no, really take a look), would reportedly prefer to stay with the Spanish giants and try to force his way into Zidane’s first team plans over the pre-season, however that is a tough ask.
Neither Wenger or Klopp are in desperate need of another attacking midfielder, however this is an opportunity that may be too good to turn down for either manager.
Liverpool and Arsenal fans, we want to hear from you! Would Jese be a good addition to either of your sides? Who would he pick between the two clubs? Let us know below…
