Arsenal 'make James Rodriguez contact'

Whether Spurs would be interested in Rodriguez remains to be seen, his wages in Madrid are likely to surpass the club's regimented structure and the prospect of Levy breaking the bank to sign him, or of James taking a pay cut, seem very remote.

The Colombian playmaker, 27, who is on a two-year loan at Bayern from Real Madrid, has not played as often under Niko Kovac this season.

On Monday, Bild reported that Rodriguez was "frustrated" after he brought on as a late substitute in Friday's 3-1 win over Hoffenheim, while Kovac has challenged the Colombia global to prove his worth to the team.

Arsenal have instructed intermediary agents to open talks over a possible deal to sign James Rodriguez - who's now on loan at Bayern Munich, according to the Independent.

Despite the storm bringing dangerously freezing temperatures across the Northeast, people seem to be enjoying the view. Emma Graham told CNN she felt like she was in "Elsa's castle".

But, according to ESPN FC, James will remain at Bayern until his loan deal expires in the summer and could even extend his stay for next season.

But with Real reportedly targeting Christian Eriksen - of bitter rivals Tottenham - Rodriguez may have no choice but to move, handing Arsenal a major boost in the chase to get their man to replace Ozil.

However the ex-Monaco star's stock is still high in the transfer market as top clubs including Arsenal, Juventus and Napoli have been linked to secure his signature. Under the Croat, he has made only 12 appearances in all competitions - playing the full 90 minutes just once - in a campaign that has in part been hampered by ankle issues and a knee-ligament injury.
