Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been dancing with excitement today after hearing that their club has made moves ahead of a sensational January transfer.
Metro, reporting via ClubCall, state that the Gunners sent representatives to watch Isco in action for Real Madrid in their Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk, which finished 4-3 in favour of the Spanish side.
The fixture came just days after an alleged fall-out between Isco and his Spanish employers, with the midfielder far from happy with his playing opportunities under Rafael Benitez and seeking an exit from the club in the New Year.
Isco’s bust-up followed a dismissal in Real Madrid’s embarrassing El Clasico defeat at the hands of Barcelona, where he received his marching orders for kicking out at Neymar.
The 23-year-old has regularly been linked with a Premier League move but Arsenal fans are confident that their club can finally lure the superstar to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal fans, how big a signing would this be? Let us know in the comments below!
