Espanyol's Rodriguez emerges as a Rangers target
The 23-year old Spanish centre-half is seen as the man to form a god partnership with Madjid Bougherra in the heart of the 'Gers defence and negotiations will occur in the next 24 hours for a proposed £500,000 according to reports.
"We've had good reports on him. We now need to speak to Espanyol and discuss the terms of any possible transfer," he said.
"We are working on a number of targets and hope to make progress in the coming week."
