Arsenal are reportedly planning a move for Chelsea and Liverpool target Isco with a £35million to strengthen the injury stricken midfield.
The 23-year-old Real Madrid star is said to be looking for a career away from Bernabeu because of high level competition in the Real Madrid’s midfield.
Apart from the Premier League sides, Juventus are also interested to rescue the attacking midfielder from his limited role under new boss Rafa Benitez.
On the other hand, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is desperate to reinforce his team with more options in the upcoming transfer window as a number of his key players are out with injury.
With Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky all are currently injured, Arsenal’s race for the Premier League title is under severe threat. If Wenger signs the 23-year-old Spaniard, Wenger would find valuable options going forward with Isco slotted alongside Ozil and Sanchez.
However, Petr Cech was the only major signing for Arsene Wenger in the summer transfer window and is now being urged by the supporters to go for a £35million January signing to bring Isco.
Back in September, Arsenal were on high alert the Real Madrid playmaker handed his club a transfer request.
The 23-year-old playmaker, who has been linked with several Premier League clubs, is keen to change the current scenario as the arrival of Mateo Kovacic from Inter Milan has cut short his first team football and now he has decided to part away with Real. Moreover he scored only once in 17 appearances this season in all competitions. Spanish media reported, along with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool were also keeping an eye on Isco.
Rafa Benitez also could go for a healthy £35m for a young prospect like Isco. His potential is quite clear for all to see, as he is just in the early years of his career.
The Real Madrid playmaker has been linked with top Premier League clubs in the last 2-3 transfer windows also. Arsenal is now hoping to take advantage of the uncertainty over the player’s future in Real as Arsene Wenger is looking to bolster his midfield.
