With the Manchester United route pretty much drying up, and PSG not making the effort it was hoped they would, a new destination needs to be found for James Rodriguez.

Playmaker Rodriguez is keen on leaving the back-to-back European champions due to the fact it's a World Cup year and he doesn't want to risk losing his place in Colombia's starting lineup; the fact he barely featured last campaign for Madrid - at least not in a starting capacity - will only further his resolve to leave the club.

The Colombian worldwide started just 13 La Liga games last season and was left out of Zinedine Zidane's squad entirely for Madrid's Champions League final win over Juventus.

Arsenal have joined Liverpool and Manchester United in the race to sign £50m-rated Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez this summer, according to the Mirror.
