Arsenal serious about bringing Real Madrid outcast James to London

Arsenal are serious about bringing Real Madrid outcast James Rodriguez to London.

Marca says Arsenal are still keen on a move for Rodriguez - despite being rejected by the Real Madrid star last summer.

Rodriguez has failed to work his way back into Zinedine Zidane's plans this season, making just seven La Liga appearances since returning from his two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich.

He has three summer options - including Arsenal, who 'continue to insist' on a move for the Colombian playmaker.

Juventus and Napoli are also said to be keen, but Arsenal are considered the most likely move with his options limited following his tough campaign.

It is claimed Rodriguez instructed agent Jorge Mendes to look at other options when the club were keen last year as he wanted a move to Spain or Italy rather than the Premier League.
