According to reports in England, Arsenal have began discussions with Valencia about the possibility of signing Rodrigo Moreno.

The Sunday Mirror reports that the Guners have shown interest in signing the 29-year old forward when the summer transfer window opens.

According to the same story, Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta has instructed the Arsenal board to sign a new forward before the start of his first full Premier League campaign in charge of the north London side.

The Daily Mirror in another report also claim that Valencia will consider selling Rodrigo if Arsenal will make an offer in the region of £50m for the 29-year-old Spanish forward.

Rodrigo has scored 56 times in 213 games in all competitions, averaging a goal every four games for the La Liga side.

In the current season, Rodrigo has scored 6 time in 25 appearances in all competitions; 2 goals and 9 assists in Laliga, and has also netted 4 goals in cup competitions.

The Spain international has spent the past six seasons at Valencia following his move to los Che from Portuguese side Benfica back in the 2014 summer transfer window.

Moreno has scored two goals and has made nine assists in 21 appearances in La Liga this season, while the Spanish forward has also netted four times in cup competitions.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are prepared to sell Pieere-Emerick Aubameyang in the coming months if the Gunners receives an acceptable bid rather than loose the club's captain for nothing next summer.
