Merseyside Giants Liverpool have signalled their interest to sign Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.
The club have had the player on their radar for quite a while but have been put off by Real Madrid.
The Colombian midfielder seems to be in Zinedine Zidane's future plans and is now looking to move with reports suggesting he might be offered to Chelsea in a part move to sign Eden Hazard.
The 25 year old has a contract with Los Blancos that expires in June 2020.
Liverpool have been told by representatives of the player that he would only be interested in a move to Anfield should they secure Champions League football.
Arsenal Target Dusan Tadic
Arsenal are looking to add reinforcements this season as the club prepares for the exit of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
Included in this shortlist is Southampton's winger Dusan Tadic.
The Saints' midfielder is a hot commodity on the transfer market with a lot of club in the chase of the player.
Juventus and Napoli sent scouts to watch Tadic on international duty for Serbia against Georgia on Friday.
And according to Italian news outlet Tuttomercatoweb, the 28-year-old could be available for £13m.
This will no doubt please Arsene Wenger, who will have money to spend on the players in the summer.
Tadic is contracted with Saints until 2020.
