Arsenal ‘most interested’ in signing James Rodriguez

James Rodriguez will leave Real Madrid this summer and his destination could be Arsenal, according to AS.

The Colombian’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has been searching for a new club for weeks, with James desperate to quit the Bernabeu.

And Arsenal are currently the ‘most interested’ in 29-year-old Rodriguez, it is claimed.

Despite that, their interest has not yet led to an official approach.

PSG and Atletico Madrid are two other clubs mentioned as possible options for James.

Atletico tried to sign James last year but could not strike a deal with rivals Real Madrid.

James asked coach Zinedine Zidane to exclude him from the match against Athletic Bilbao on July 5th.

Zidane accepted and super-agent Mendes is now trying to find a good option for the playmaker.

Madrid paid €80m for James coming off an outstanding 2014 World Cup. He has played 125 games for Los Blancos, scoring 37 goals and providing 42 assists.

He spent the last two seasons on loan at Bayern Munich, but the Bundesliga side decided not to use their €42m option to buy.
