With the injury list at the Emirates currently on the rise, Arsene Wenger has been forced to agree to the need for replacements in the winter window. According to reports by the Metro, Arsenal are believed to be eyeing Real Madrid attacking midfielder, Isco.
The Spaniard is seen as a good replacement for the injured Santi Cazorla. Isco will also be a wonderful signing for Arsenal considering he is only 23. With Arsenal on top of the Premier League table and in strong contention for the title this term, Arsenal are dearly in needs of quality replacements if they are to sustain their contention for the Premier League title.
Isco has been in and out of the Real Madrid team and hasn’t really been able to complete his transformation into a first team regular. The former Malaga man is a talented young player who has received many plaudits for his style of play, his great vision, his eyes for goal and his pretty quick and concise decision making on the pitch. He is quite fast and versatile as well as he can operate from the flanks too. He was in October reported to have requested a move away from the Bernabeu.
It was reported that the young player wanted a move to a club where he would be guaranteed more first team football. It is believed that the Arsenal board have lined up a £48million bid which is believed to be too mouthwatering to get rejected.
It is believed that Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea are also interested in the services of the young Spaniard. Capturing Isco’s signature will be a great deal for Arsenal as he evidently fits into the Arsenal style of play.
The addition of the 23-year old to the Arsenal squad would leave coach Arsene Wenger with plenty of offensive options and would also boost their title winning prospects.
