Arsenal are being encouraged to make a move for Colombian international James Rodriguez, according to the Independent.
The 27-year-old is in the final six months of a two-year loan from Real Madrid with Bayern Munich keen to offload the playmaker if they can find a club willing to pay a £3million fee to release him from the existing agreement.
Any potential loan deal could hinge on whether the Gunners can offload Mesut Ozil in the January transfer window.
Rodriguez is determined to fight for his place at Los Blancos but that could become a lot more difficult if Real sign Christian Eriksen from Spurs and Eden Hazard from Chelsea.
Tottenham could battle their north London rivals for Rodriguez if Eriksen heads to the Spanish capital.
