Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, is reportedly
targeting a move for Real Madrid’s James
Rodriguez has spent the last 18 months on loan
at Bayern Munich and his future beyond the
summer is uncertain, as he has struggled to hold
down a spot this season.
And Arsenal could take advantage and take over
the loan deal for the remainder of the campaign,
at a cost of £3million, according to the Daily
Bayern paid £11.5m for the two-year loan and
have the option to buy Rodriguez for £39.5m
Emery’s interest in Rodriguez, comes amid
speculations that he is willing to sanction Mesut
Ozil’s exit this month.
Ozil has fallen out of favour this season under
Emery and was left out of the Gunners’ squad
for Saturday’s loss to West Ham.
And it is understood that the manager has lost
faith in his playmaker and wants him out before
the end of January.
