Opinion – Why James Rodriguez is not the right fit for Arsenal

James Rodriguez was an exceptional talent, however, for one reason or another he has not fulfilled his immense potential, and continues to be one of those players that are speculated about in every transfer window.

Rodriguez has not quite made the breakthrough at Real Madrid, he was shipped out on loan to Bayern Munich and failed to convince the German giants to sign him on a permanent basis and his return to Spain has not seen any improvement in his prospects under Zinedine Zidane.

Arsenal was supposed to be interested in signing the Colombian last summer but of course, no move materialised and according to Sports Witness, Rodriguez had no interest in the Premier League.

That has apparently changed and now he would welcome a move to England but the thing is this, it is not because he loves English football or Arsenal but because no one in Italy or Spain wants him. Well, not at the elite level.

Arsenal needs to sign players that desperately want to play for the club, not so-called superstars that are not actually superstars who would end up at the Emirates because they have nowhere else to go.

Rodriguez is starting to look like a player that is ready to follow the money as opposed to following a dream or ambition and Arsenal can and should do better than that.

    If he was “following dream and ambition”, he wouldn’t come here πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜œπŸ˜πŸ˜…

    This site has now become farcical IMO. This very article was on a short while ago and has been put up again. I well understand that right now there is a sad shortage of news but surely we do not need repeats from a day or so ago and this happens constantly. I will not be much on this site for a while, as it is pointless and boring having to read the same article repeated ad nauseum. No one much is reading anything right now, nor will for sometime,UNLESS you can find new type articles from somewhere. I have submitted four this last week but even those are running out of readers. LETS FACE FACTS- FOR SOME MONTHS TO COME FOLK HAVE OTHER THINGS THAN ARSENAL ON OUR MINDS.

      Reading is an art form, Jon, and News Now isn’t art in any meaning of the word. It’s some kind of lower entertainment for us suckers who loves Asn’l, blind and senseless. Now when we are rejected by that wicked wenche in red and white we ought to turn off the pc and visit the library for some good genuine reading. You’re british, man, you should read Love’s Labors Lost and Two Gentlemen of Verona. Not speculations about boys in shorts and long stockings who never will come to Ashburton Grove anyway. And if you don’t feel like reading the real mccoy, you can always dream of the good old days, the days of wine and roses, when Highbury were the home of the Gunners. When Bob Wilson stood there between the posts and Frank McLintock made Peter Osgood and Martin Chivers look like fools. With Pat Rice and Bob McNab as his assistants. Who was the fifth guy, Peter Storey?

    The player fails to flatter. Overhyped, overpaid and we should show no interest. Rather trust in our youth with an upside, not in this flop.

    Would be repeating our Ozil mistake if we brought him in. History would repeat itself

  5. ThirdManJW says:

    Why would we want two Ozil’s?

    Surprisingly EPL players refuse a pay cut, the same with Barca

    while Juve players agree to a pay cut due to the crisis
