Rodrigo Moreno has seen his star rise this season after failing to make an impact at Real Madrid. The young Spanish striker spent a couple of years trying to make the mark at the Bernabeu before moving to Benfica where his career has begun to take off this term.

The 21 year old striker has netted nine goals in 18 matches this season to help Benfica to overhaul FC Porto at the top of the table. Rodrigo has perhaps impressed most with the Spanish Under 21 international side, scoring seven goals in five appearances.

Arsene Wenger has reportedly had the Brazilian born striker scouted on a number of occasions this season and is now a summer target for the North London side.
