Saudi Clubs Interested in Ricardo Rodriguez

28/06/24 17:26

It has been announced that Ricardo Rodriguez, who is currently playing at the 2024 Euro for Switzerland, did not extend his contract with Italian side Torino and he will be a free agent after his contract runs out on July 1st.

Now, according to Fabrizio Romano, who Football Park rate as a tier one in reliability, Rodriguez has been approached by three Saudi Pro League clubs.

The centre-back joined Torino in 2020 and has been a crucial part in the club’s defensive line-up. Last season, he started for the Italian side in 89% of the 35 matches he played and was involved in 8% of the goals Torino scored.

Because of his top performances at Torino this season he has been called up to play for the Swiss national team and has played all three games in the group stages. He is therefore likely to play in their first knock-out game against Italy as well.

Il Toro hasn't given a reason as to why his contract will not be renewed and neither has Rodriguez himself.

Which Saudi clubs are interested in Rodriguez has not been confirmed yet. But depending on how his campaign with the Swiss national team turns out, he may still receive attention from top clubs around Europe.
