According to reports in the Telegraph, Spanish giants Real Madrid have offered up their out of favour midfielder Isco to Arsenal, but only for a fee that could be worth up to £25 million.
The Spain international has been a long-term target of Arsene Wenger since his days at Malaga and it looks as though due to his current contract situation and lack of playing time at the Santiago Bernabeu, there is no better time to move for Isco than the present.
A key reason for Isco’s unhappiness in Madrid was as a result of a poor relationship with the former Galactico’s boss Rafael Benitez, who was recently sacked and replaced with club legend Zinedine Zidane.
However despite Isco being separated from his ex-boss, which was looked upon as a positive move by Real Madrid, it looks as though a move away and potentially to the Premier League could be inevitable for the Spaniard.
Manchester City are also a potential suitor for Isco, having shared a long-term admiration for the playmaker due to boss Manuel Pellegrini’s relations to the 23-year-old, managing him at Malaga.
Isco is reportedly keen on a move to England and it looks as though Arsenal suit his style the most accordingly, however, a move from City would not be surprising either.
