Arsenal handed boost in signing Colombian attacker
Arsenal have been handed a transfer boost for the next transfer window with Real Madrid prepared to part ways with James Rodriguez on a permanent basis.
The Colombian has been a decent hit for Los Blancos with 37 goals from 124 appearances but he has struggled for playing time this term due to multiple injury concerns.
According to Marca, Rodriguez is not considered as part of Zinedine Zidane's plans for next season and the club are prepared to cash in on his services as he enters the final year of his contract.
Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers have already been linked with the versatile forward but reports claim that the Gunners could be leading the race to sign the former Porto star.
Arsenal are likely to prioritise the signing of a central midfielder and central defender during the summer but they are also open to the prospect of signing another forward at an affordable price.
Rodriguez has been valued at £60m in recent transfer windows but his price tag could drastically reduce in the coming months as Los Blancos will be desperate to get him off their books.
