Arsenal reportedly in talks with Udinese for Rodrigo De Paul

We've arrived at that time of year when transfer rumors abound, but it's tough to know whether there's actual interest or if it's just an agent leaking information to the media in an attempt to speed up the process.

Rodrigo de Paul of Udinese has been fantastic for a couple of seasons and deserves an opportunity to play for a better team, according to HITC. Arsenal is reportedly interested.

As a great playmaker who can play anywhere across the offensive midfielder or even a little deeper in central midfield, he may be a terrific purchase for the Gunners.

The difficulty is that the piece also looks at long-standing ties to Liverpool and Leeds United, two clubs where he may be a fantastic fit, but that interest has to make you dubious of where these Arsenal links came from.

Realistically, he's one of the more affordable players in Europe right now with a massive upside, so it's understandable that every major club will at least have a look at him, and he's another name for fans to keep an eye on as the market moves forward in the coming weeks.
