- James Rodriguez has turned down a potential move to Arsenal during the January 2019 window transfer
- Arsenal boss Unai Emery is interested in signing the Madrid star who is currently on loan at Bayern Munich

Real Madrid star James Rodriguez has reportedly rejected a potential move to the Premier League with Arsenal.
According to a UK Metro report citing ESPN, the Colombian star will stay at Bayern Munich until the end of the season, where he is playing on loan.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery is keen to land the signing of Rodriguez who has now entered the last six months of his loan deal with the Bundesliga giants.
The 27-year-old was also said to be eyeing an exit from Bayern Munich owing to his limited playing time but has since resolved to make a decision on his future in the summer.
He has spent the last one and half years with Bayern but has fallen down the pecking order since the arrival of Niko Kovac as manager.
Owing to Rodriguez' loan deal with Bayern, the German side have the option of making his move permanent in the summer for £37 million.
His decision to stay at Allianz Arena till the end of the season is expected to force the Gunners to look elsewhere for reinforcements.
Emery is desperate to bolster his squad during this window transfer as he pushes for a top four finish in the Premier League.
