Bayern Munich Boss Insists Arsenal Target Not Seeking Move

Bayern Munich Boss Insists Arsenal Target Not Seeking Move

On Saturday the 30-year-old was omitted from Arsenal's match-day squad to face West Ham, despite the fact he was fit and available after returning from injury.

It would be understandable to assume that most Arsenal fans are clamouring for manager Unai Emery to urgently make headway in this winter transfer window, to counterbalance the current malaise the Gunners are now feeling.

Many pundits feel, Emery is making a huge blunder by selling off Ozil but as per the latest reports, the manager is keen on selling him off due to two primary reasons.

However, Ozil's wage demands could prove to be a stumbling block in any negotiations, with his current deal at Arsenal worth around £350,000 per week.

Simply put, the Gunners can't afford to be paying so much money for a player who can't even get into the team. British newspaper the Daily Mail has been the first to reveal their interest in the Bayern playmaker.

That sum would allow James to complete the rest of his two-year loan deal he is now on at Bayern Munich from Real Madrid in North London. The Germans still owe Real Madrid around three million pounds for James and Arsenal could pay that payment.

Rodriguez made his name during spells at Porto and Monaco but really blew on to the world stage after some superb performances at the 2014 World Cup which earned him a big-money move to Real Madrid.

Arsenal fans are understandably frustrated and sad about potentially losing Ramsey and Ozil over the next few months, but signing Rodriguez would soften the blow somewhat.
