Reports have claimed Arsenal are lining up a bid for Real Madrid midfielder Isco with James Rodriguez close to joining the Spanish club.
The Spanish giants have just completed the signing of Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich and now the club’s midfield is all of a sudden starting to become crowded.
And that has seen 22-year-old Isco emerge as the man to potentially make way, after failing to make the impact that many at the club had hoped.
Now reports claim Real are ready to listen to offers for the playmaker to help ease the logjam, and that has put Arsenal on alert.
Arsene Wenger is a massive fan of the young man, and with talk that Santi Cazorla could leave, the French boss would love to sign up Isco as his replacement.
