James Rodriguez, who is playing on loan for Bayern Munich is excited by the prospect of joining Arsenal.
Bayern have the option to sign James on a permanent deal in the summer, but a return to the Bernabeu appears more likely.
Spanish outlet Don Balon
suggests that Arsenal have now emerged as contenders to land the 27-year-old, with a sum of around £80m expected to be enough to secure his signature and the player himself is open to making the switch.
James has appeared 11 times for Bayern in all competitions this season.
