According to a recent report from AS, Arsenal are viewed as the most interested party when it comes to Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez – even though no clubs are believed to have made an offer just yet.
Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid are also keeping an eye on the Colombian’s situation, but at this moment in time, the Gunners are at the front of the queue.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta appears to be ready for a busy few weeks in the transfer window, especially now that they’ve confirmed their place in the Europa League next season.
Still, signing someone of James’ stature and reputation isn’t going to be easy, especially when you think about the ups and downs he’s had in his career in recent years.
They’ve almost certainly got the money, but they have to decide what positions they want to try and prioritise whilst they’ve got the chance to buy.
