Arsenal are believed to have become the latest Premier League outfit to monitor James Rodriguez’s situation at Real Madrid, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Colombian international laid on an impressive hat trick of assists for his teammates during the weekend’s 10-2 hammering of Rayo Vallecano, but despite that he has grown disillusioned with life in the Spanish capital and could be convinced to move on.
Madrid paid £64million for his services following his impressive showing at the World Cup in 2014, so it is unlikely that they would allow him to leave on the cheap.
But Arsenal do have money available, and Arsene Wenger is not adverse to spacing the cash on a marquee style signing when needed.
And they are certainly in need now, with injury ravaging the squad lately, Wenger would do well to bolster his ranks to maintain a meaningful title challenge, and while someone like Rodriguez is available he should move as soon as he can.
