Arsenal have reportedly been advised a sum of £25 million would be enough to sign Isco away Real Madrid as the January transfer window faces closer.
According to El Confidencial, Arsenal are the frontrunners in signing the Spanish playmaker but are facing competing from bitter rivals, Manchester City. The paper suggest that the main problem for the Gunners is that Isco played under current-City manager Manuel Pellegrini during his time as Malaga head coach and could possibly lure the Spaniard to City.
Isco is reportedly unhappy with life at Real Madrid, despite Zinedine Zidane using ahead of James Rodriguez.
The 23-year-old has started in 12 of Real’s 21 games this term.
Isco is one of the finest players in the game banked on his ability to play football with a natural swagger, easy touch, owns an inherent and can slice defenses upon with a pinpoint pass.
