Real Madrid expect Arsenal bid for out of favour Spanish superstar Isco.
Real Madrid is expecting a bid from Arsenal for one of their out-of-favour stars in the January transfer window.
Reports in Spain via the Metro claims that Los Merengues are expecting the Gunners to make a move for Isco in the next transfer window after he fell down the pecking order at the Bernabeu.
Isco had been an important part of Madrid’s squad for a long time and has rejected several offers to move to the Premier League. However, he has started just two league games this season and hasn’t featured in the Champions League at all.
One of the biggest reasons why Isco could welcome a move to the Emirates is because he has lost his place in the Spanish national team.
Isco was recently one of the top stars that were dropped from the last Spain squad. He has been told that he needs to play more often if he wants to add to the 38 caps.
The Spanish report claims that Madrid would be keen to sell him should the Gunners eventually make their move. According to the same reports they have already lined up Christian Eriksen as his replacement.
Manchester City is also interested in signing Isco. However, Pep Guardiola has more need for a defender at the moment and that leaves Arsenal in pole position.
It has to be said that Isco always pops up as a target almost every transfer window. So, while a move is possible, it is hardly nailed on.
