Sunderland's head of recruitment, Stuart Harvey, has been busy on a scouting mission to South America, according to reports.
The deal to take Stewart to St Mary's brought in around £10million to the coffers at the Stadium of Light, with reports suggesting that Rodriguez could cost around £8million.
The 20-year-old striker is said to be keen to move to Europe, and his profile is on the rise after he netted the winning goal when Uruguay beat Italy 1-0 in the under-20 World Cup final in June.
The Black Cats signed Luis Hemir Semedio, Nazariy Rusyn and Eliezer Mayenda on permanent deals last summer, with Mason Burstow also joining on loan from Chelsea.
