Arsenal are eyeing a move for Real Madrid winger James Rodriguez as the Spanish club considers selling the playmaker, according to reports.
Arsenal fans have been hoping the club make a statement in the transfer window by signing a marquee player and they could now be in for a positive news as reports are claiming the club is considering making a move for Rodriguez.
According to the Telegraph, Arsenal have been alerted by Madrid’s intentions to sell Rodriguez.
The report claims Wenger is prepared to turn to the Colombia international after missing out on Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez.
Arsenal have been linked with Mahrez all summer but City are unwilling to let the Algerian leave the King Power Stadium. Wenger has now lined up Rodriguez as an alternative target and could make a move for the 25 year old this summer.
Reports in Spain claim an unnamed English club tabled a bid of £71m for Rodriguez. It is not yet known if it was Arsenal who tabled the huge bid but we are being touted as favourites to sign the playmaker.
Wenger has always stated he is prepared to spend big in the transfer market and this could be the best opportunity for the French man to back his statement.
The club has also been linked with Real Madrid’s Isco and could make a move for either of the players.
