Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
We may not be far from signing the Golden boot winner of the 2014 World Cup James Rodriguez, with latest reports according to London Evening Standard claiming the player’s agent Jorge Mendes has informed Arsenal that Los Blancos are willing to sell the attacking midfielder.
The Colulmbian international has drawn interest from Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea and Arsenal but he would fancy a move to the Premier League.
Wenger admitted after Liverpool stunned his team last weekend that he will sign players.
“We need some players back and of course I’ve said many times before we are working very hard still to get one or two more players in.”
“It’s always desperate because there’s not much time left but I don’t know what you’d call desperate, it has to make sense and be quality.”
“We’ve done that [spent big] before, but it’s about identifying the players and the availability of the players.”
Rodriguez has fallen out of favor with Zidane and his best bet at playing regularly is away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
Cost could be an issue for the London clubs with Madrid wanting around £65million for the forward.
