On-loan Bayern Munich star James Rodriguez is excited by the prospect of joining Arsenal, with the Colombia international being 16 months into a two-year spell with the Bavarians from European champions Real Madrid.
Bayern Munich have the option to sign James Rodriguez on a permanent deal in the summer transfer window, but a return to Santiago Bernabeu appears more likely at this point.
Spanish publication Don Balon claims that Arsenal have now emerged as contenders to land the 27-year-old attacking midfielder, with a sum of around £80 million expected to be enough to secure his services.
Despite the hefty transfer fee, it is claimed that the north London club’s chiefs are willing to invest to please manager Unai Emery, and the player himself is open to making a move.
James Rodriguez has appeared 11 times for Bayern Munich in all competitions this season but Niko Kovac has a turbulent relationship with the playmaker despite the struggles of the club, and for Arsenal, it will be a great addition.
With Aaron Ramsey leaving Emirates in the summer the Colombian midfielder would replace the Wales international directly.
