Bournemouth are interested in a move for Real Madrid youngster Óscar Rodríguez this summer but may face competition for his signature from Norwich.
That’s according to Onda Cero, who say the 21-year-old is set to be put up for sale by the La Liga giants in the summer transfer window.
Rodríguez has been spending the season on loan at Leganés and impressed, scoring seven goals and registering two assists in 28 games so far.
However, his performances have not earned him enough credit for a place at the Bernabeu and Madrid plan to cash in on him, albeit in a deal that will include a buy-back option.
The attacking midfielder is not ‘lacking suitors’ according to the radio station, with clubs inside and outside of Spain all keen on his signature.
One of those outside La Liga are Bournemouth, while Premier League rivals Norwich are also an option in the Premier League.
Both clubs are said to have shown ‘real interest’ in signing the 21-year-old, with the fee likely to be between €15-20m.
That is a price that Bournemouth are far more likely to find acceptable than Norwich given the respective finances at both clubs, although it would presumably be very dependant on whether either stay in the league first.
Rodríguez, for his part, is keen to take a ‘step further’ in his career and join a European team who can qualify for Europe so both clubs may have some convincing to do should they be willing to match that asking price anyway.
