Inter keen to add former Real Madrid youth player
The Nerazzurri are looking to bolster an attacking line that has sputtered since the season-ending injury to Diego Milito and the lack of impact from January signing Tommaso Rocchi.
Record are reporting that Inter have targeted Rodrigo due to his ability to play several attacking positions, though he is largely seen as a striker.
The Brazilian-born Spanish footballer grew up in the Real Madrid youth ranks, before joining Benfica in 2010 for approximately €6 million. It is reported that the Nerazzurri would have to cough up €10 million in order to land the Rio de Janeiro native.
Since then he has gone on to score 15 goals in 37 appearances for the Águias. His contract runs until 2019 and has a €45 million buy-out clause.
