Tottenham interested in Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez
The Colombian spent two seasons on loan at Bayer Munich before returning to the Spanish capital.
Rodriguez was unable to cement a place at the Bundesliga giants and has struggled for minutes at Real too. The 28-year-old has only made four starts for the Madrid giants and is currently out with an injury.
The report claims that Napoli are also interested in the attacker and could make a move in the January window.
The Serie A giants were linked with him in January but could not meet Real’s valuation of the player (h/t Calciomercato).
A risky signing for Spurs?
The Colombian has struggled for form ever since he joined Los Galacticos after the 2014 World Cup.
Rodriguez was one of the stars in that competition, but things just haven’t gone his way since.
The attacking-midfielder is 28 already and adjusting to the Premier League isn’t a surety either. Spurs could do with more attacking options in the winter window, but a move for Rodriguez seems to be risky.
Christian Eriksen is a free agent in the summer and put in another average display at Munich.
