With less than a week to go before the end of the window, Arsene Wenger could still be on the hunt for a striker, despite the acquisition of Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna, the deal expected to go through this weekend.
This brings Wenger’s signings this summer up to an incredible SIX, with Granit Xhaka, Asano, Nwakali, Rob Holding and the two latest deals still to be announced with Mustafi and Perez hopefully being unveiled this weekend or Monday.
Arsenal have been linked with many strikers this summer but even after the almost-done-deal for Perez, rumours of a move for Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez are now doing the rounds.
However, The Sun claims today that Rodriguez has been looking for a house in Turin, fuelling rumours of a move by Juventus to land the player. The 25-year-old ace as fallen out of favour at the Santiago Bernabeu, and he has found it difficult to force his way into Real’s new manager Zinedine Zidane first team’s plans.
Real Estate Company Proto Group Ltd also confirmed the report by confirming that the Colombian international is hunting for a house in Turin (which I am sure he’ll love):
“Representatives of James Rodriguez will this [Wednesday] afternoon be in Turin to confirm the renting of a villa in the city. For several weeks, we have been commissioned by the player to find a suitable home in Turin, and today we will close the deal…”
Chelsea are also said to be showing a keen interest in signing the Colombian but, with this house hunting news, it now appears Juventus are in the driving seat to seal the deal.
