James Rodriguez seems likely to depart Real Madrid this summer, with Arsenal reportedly interested in signing the Colombian playmaker.
The 29 years old, along with Gareth Bale, was left out of Zinedine Zidane’s squad for Real’s Champions League second leg encounter with Manchester City.
Philippe Coutinho is on Arsenal’s radar as they look for more creativity in the final third, with Willian having been offered a three years deal by the north London club, but James could also be a target.
Spanish outlet AS claims the Gunners are the club most likely to make a move for the Colombian.
Arsenal were among a number of teams linked with Rodriguez last summer but a deal never came to fruition.
Real Madrid boss Zidane confirmed last month Rodriguez had asked to be left out of Los Blancos’ last five games of the season in a bid to avoid injury before a possible transfer away.
Rodriguez made a total of 14 appearances for Real Madrid this season, scoring once.
Super-agent Jorge Mendes is the man tasked with finding Rodriguez a new club.
The Colombian playmaker has just one year left on his contract at the Bernabeu and could be available for as little as £22million.
