Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t had too much to shout about in the past two months but they’re starting to make a racket as excitement concerning a potential signing rises.
Isco has struggled to cement regular first-team football at the Santiago Bernabeu since switching from Malaga and the advantage Manchester City seemingly hand in the race for his signature will depart with Manuel Pellegrini this summer.
The Gunners themselves need midfield additions, with Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini all due to leave when their contracts expire this summer but it won’t be easy for Arsenal to win the race for the player.
Arsenal will be rivalled in the transfer market by Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea, all of whom are looking for big signings this summer under their respectine new managements.
Our landlord believes Arsenal would be the perfect fit for the Spaniard though, stating he can play on the right-side of midfield, currently Arsenal’s weakest position, whilst he’s also the ideal long-term successor to the ageing Santi Cazorla.
Arsenal fans, should Isco be your priority signing this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
