If you have not seen the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, then you may not have heard that Arsenal are apparently one of a number of clubs that have been put on alert to the availability of the Real Madrid and Spain international star Isco this summer.
The story goes that his current club are looking to bring in one or two big name midfielders in the summer transfer window and that Isco is the player that will make room, as long as someone is willing to pay the £35 million or so that they want, according to a report in The Mirror.
I can see why many Arsenal fans would not be overly excited by this news, as the 22-year old is very similar in stayle to a number of players currently in the Arsenal squad, such as Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky, but here is why I think Arsene Wenger should try to sign the talented youngster.
I think the Gunner most like Isco is Wilshere and I hate to say it but the Spaniard is the better of the two, while Rosicky and Cazorla are not getting any younger. We could wait to see if Jack overcomes his injury problems and starts to show the improvement we have all been waiting for, but Arsenal have been too long without the Premier League title and the fans have been patient too long.
Isco has the same sort of close control and ability to burst past players but he also scores more goals and provides plenty of assists. I think he would be great for the Gunners and if you need any more reasons to sign him, the reports reckon that Man City are also very keen and will get him if we don’t.
How about we buy Isco and sell them Wilshere for the same sort of money?
