Metro have Arsenal fans rolling their eyes here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that Arsene Wenger wants to land Isco.
The Spain and Real Madrid playmaker is valued at around £40 million although one of our punters notes that given Isco’s stock keeps rising and rising, that figure could well have increased come January!
Not only that but we cannot see why Wenger thinks buying a player like Isco is a good idea given he already has Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla at his disposal, not to mention the notable gaps in the rest of his squad.
The majority of our punters feel that it would be far better idea to spend a significant fee on buying a defensive midfielder or indeed a central defender who can bring come solidity to their back line and potentially offer some leadership.
That is before we even try and fathom why Isco would want to leave Real Madrid for North London!
Arsenal fans. £40 million for Isco; really? Surely you’d love such a fee spent on Mats Hummels instead? Let us know your thoughts below.
