Reports: Everton in pole position to sign James Rodriguez from Real Madrid

Everton is leading the race to sign James Rodriguez from Real Madrid in January, according to Spanish publication El Desmarque.

Carlo Ancelotti will be handed money to spend next month after being given assurances on transfers before agreeing to become Everton's new manager, and the Italian has set his sights on a move for Rodriguez, who he tried to sign for Napoli during the summer window.

El Desmarque claims that the Colombian, who will cost around £43million, is also wanted by Arsenal, Inter Milan, Roma, and Marseille.

Ancelotti's former club, Napoli, also retains an interest in Rodriguez, who has made just nine appearances in all competitions for Real Madrid this season.
