Arsenal have emerged as a surprise suitor for James Rodriguez, reports claim.
The Real Madrid ace was loaned to Bayern Munich in the summer and, having overcome a slow start, has now rediscovered his best form in Bavaria.
Rodriguez has started 13 games for the Bundesliga champions this term, scoring four and providing six assists.
The Colombia international emerged as one of Europe’s hottest talents during his sublime performance in the World Cup 2014.
Bayern are keen on making him a permanent feature at the Allianz. But as reported by the Express, the 26-year-old may chance his arm in England with Liverpool or Arsenal instead.
The midfielder is suggested to have told Barcelona defender Yerry Mina that his preference is to return to Real Madrid in the summer.
However, it could hinge on whether Zinedine Zidane is still in the job by the end of the season.
