Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern were excited today after being informed of a agreement on the table for the summer, although it’s not all good news for the Gunners.
Tribal Football exclusively indicate that Arsenal have an agreement with Real Madrid to sit-down this summer and discuss a potential deal for Spanish international Isco, who is widely expected to leave the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.
The 23-year-old has struggled to cement himself into the starting eleven in the Spanish capital and with Los Blancos set for a major overhaul this summer, Isco is likely to be put on the market- and Arsenal want him to bolster their midfield ranks.
However, the Gunners could face a problem in luring the talented midfielder to the Emirates Stadium as it’s indicated Jose Mourinho is targeting Isco for Manchester United, should he replace Louis Van Gaal as manager.
Isco previously worked under Mourinho at Real Madrid and the lure of the Portuguese boss at Old Trafford could be too much to ignore, although Arsenal will hope for a deal as they already have their foot in the door.
Which side needs Isco’s services more? Let us know in the comments below!
