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.
Chelsea have reportedly made a £60million offer to Real Madrid for Arsenal target James Rodriguez after they’ve giving up hope of bringing Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge.
The Colombian international has been linked with a possible move to the Emirates stadium after seeing himself down the pecking order under Real manager Zinedine Zidane.
In addition, according to Sport, the Blues have already met with the 25-year-old’s agent to finalize their interest and hope they can complete the transfer before the transfer window closes.
However, the European champion’s president Florentizo Perez is unwilling to allow Rodriguez leave Santiago Bernabeu, although there was an earlier report suggesting that Real manager wants to force the Colombian playmaker out.
Rodriguez has 25 goals in his 79 appearances for the Los Blancos since he moved to Bernabeu from Monaco after exhibiting impressive performances during the 2014 World Cup with Colombia.
