Gunners in pole position to sign €65m-rated Bundesliga playmaker

London club in pole position to sign Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez and set to battle with Liverpool, Man United, Chelsea and Juventus for the player. Unai Emery keen to improve the attack and his main target is Colombia international who has an impressive season and proves his greatness one more time.

Aaron Ramsey joined Old Lady, Mesut Ozil is in terrible form, Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny linked with several clubs and they need back-up. Spanish manager will do everything to add him this summer, but it will be difficult as Reds, Red Devils, Blues and Bianconeri also planning to make a bid during the transfer window.

James joined Bayern Munich from the Los Blancos in 2017 with a two season-long loan deal. He is one of the best playmakers in Europe and a key figure for the club. In this campaign, Rodriguez already played 28 games, scored seven goals and made six assists in all tournament.

It is a fantastic consequence, and he can improve his results during this season. The 27-year-old attacker’s release clause is around €65m, which is a decent price for such a prolific playmaker. He regularly plays in the national team and also helped them to reach the quarter-final in the 2014 World Cup, but after losing 2-1 against Brazil, they kicked out from the competition.

Probably he will accept the right offer from the Gunners during the transfer window. English club heavily linked with Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barellas, Roma attacker Nicolo Zaniolo, Lyon footballer Tanguy Ndombele and PSG player Adrien Rabiot.
