Arsenal’s transfer tale of inactivities continues but we hope the status quo changes before the closure of window.
Reports according to Daily Cannon via Bild claims Arsenal have made a secret bid of £71m for Real Madrid’s superstar James Rodriguez. The report claims an unamed club offered the aforementioned sum but it is believe to be Arsenal,.
Despite our keen interest in Riyad Mahrez, Arsenal have failed to land the left footed schemer and news emerged that we were interested in Julian Draxler but that report seem to have faded away.
Although, we cannot ascertain the veracity of this report but it also seems Arsenal are yet to make any bid for the player’s team mate Isco but are interested in breaking the bank to land him.
Since the arrival of Zidane at the helm of affairs for Real Madrid, Rodriguez has found life more difficult to the point where he fell behind Isco in the selection perking order.
He made 26 La Liga appearances for Los Blancos last season, nine of which were from the bench. With an improved contract offered to Zidane, Rodriguez will certainly find life difficult in Madrid in the coming season.
However, I think if we are genuinely interested in Rodriguez, we can snap a deal for him – he has more experience than Mahrez and I think he will add more value to Arsenal’s team than Mahrez.
Wenger should shatter the bank for this player.
