With the signing of Kylian Mbappe looking seemingly dead in the water, Arsene Wenger is now looking elsewhere for a world class attacker to boost the Arsenal strike force.
Now, The Daily Express are saying that we have tabled a huge bid for Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez, with a Spanish journalist claiming our bid isn’t too far off Madrid’s £70m valuation.
Rodriguez wasn’t a regular starter last season for Madrid, and would jump at the chance to become a regular in Arsene Wenger’s side next season, and it won’t do our chances of landing him any harm, the fact that he is married to our wantaway keeper David Ospina’s sister.
Ospina himself, is rumoured to be on his way out of the club after becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of league games, after he’s struggled to replace Petr Cech as our chosen number one, with rumours are that he could be on the move to Turkey for as little as £3m.
The summer transfer window rumour mill is certainly in full flow already, so let’s see if there is any truth to these rumours, watch this space!
