Arsenal are being linked with a move to sign James Rodriguez from Real Madrid this summer, while Alexis Sanchez looks destined to quit the club.
The Chilean is out of contract in 2018 and looks no closer to signing an extension, which will leave Arsenal at risk of losing him for free in a year if they do not find a buyer in the coming window.
Alexis has supposedly told team-mates that he will quit the club at the end of the season, which will leave a big hole in the first-team, with the forward having been hugely important this term in terms of goals, assists and general leadership on the pitch.
He will take some replacing, but one player who could go a long way to filling that void is James Rodriguez.
The Colombian has become one of the most talented players on the continent since making his €80 Million move from Monaco following a highly impressive World Cup campaign, and has proven to be one of the most consistent creative players in his side, despite being used sparingly.
The 25 year-old is currently vying with Isco, Lucas Vasquez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale amongst others for attacking roles in the first-team, and is supposedly open to a move in order to feature more heavily.
Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City are also believed to be keen on his signature, and if our club is serious about overhauling or failing squad, then the board need to show that in the transfer window by backing big moves.
James is a highly excited prospect, and should Alexis leave, Rodriguez may well be the best option available to replace him.
Who could be a better option than James? Would he be perfect?
