Experienced journalist Andy Brassell has shut down transfer rumours linking the Gunners with a move for Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez.
The Colombian international attacker is gradually coming to the end of his two-year loan deal to German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
James Rodriguez had earlier joined the Bavarian giants on a two-year loan deal from Champions League holders Real Madrid at the start of last season.
Andy Brassell talked about a potential Arsenal move for him while he was on popular radio TalkSports via the Daily Star.
When asked about a possible transfer for James Rodriguez by host Danny Kelly, the experienced European football expert said that the move is highly unlikely.
Earlier reports had revealed that the Gunners have made a £63m bid for James Rodriguez.
The former AS Monaco and FC Porto man could be a possible replacement for Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil who has struggled to adapt to the tactics of new Gunners boss Unai Emery.
Recently retired German international playmaker Ozil has been dropped for some Arsenal games this season despite the fact that the 2014 World Cup winner is the highest paid player at the club.
He has been linked with a move away from Arsenal with clubs like Inter Milan and Manchester United.
