According to popular Spanish radio station Ser Deportivos Valencia (via AS), Barcelona have held a meeting with Valencia president Anil Murthy over a potential transfer that would see Rodrigo Moreno move to the Nou Camp in January.
The same source has also revealed that the Catalan giants are exploring the possibility of an initial loan agreement with a view of a permanent transfer next summer. It is believed that Rodrigo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, will do his best to get the deal done before the end of this winter transfer window (via AS).
Rodrigo’s Mixed Season In The Spanish Top-Flight Thus Far
The 28-year-old has endured a frustrating season at the Mestalla Stadium in terms of goal-scoring. However, he has been quite productive regarding creating goal-scoring opportunities for others around him. One can argue whether his productivity in front of the opposition goal will increase if he is surrounded by better quality at the Nou Camp.
Rodrigo has scored four times and provided ten assists in 23 appearances for Valencia this term across all competitions. He has averaged 2.0 shots, 1.1 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per game for both club and country this season (stats via whoscored). The former Celta de Vigo talent has also secured 22 senior caps for the Spanish national team and has scored eight goals for his country in the process.
What Will The Brazilian-born Striker Bring To The Nou Camp?
Rodrigo boasts electric pace and is a decent dribbler with the ball in the final third. He can effortlessly get into some dangerous areas inside the opposition penalty box and is deadly in front of goal. The Spaniard excels at finishing off chances and is also a good link-up man up top. The Valencia frontman is not shy of working his socks off for the benefit of his team.
Acquiring a top striker like Rodrigo will be a massive coup for the La Liga giants heading into the second half of this campaign. He will be an ideal replacement for Luis Suarez, who is out of action for four months after undergoing knee surgery. The Spanish forward will also help the Catalan outfit compete for multiple trophies come May.
Hence, it makes a lot of sense for Quique Setien to loosen his purse strings to sign Rodrigo before the end of this month.
