Speaking to GiveMeSport, reporter Pete O’Rourke has shared his Tottenham Hotspur transfer belief involving Real Madrid playmaker Isco.
The Lowdown: Isco linked to Spurs…
Over these last few weeks, there has been a report linking the Spaniard with a move to north London as Tottenham reportedly chase attacking midfielders this month.
Indeed, The Sunday Mirror recently claimed (via The Express) that Tottenham will be offered the chance to sign the 29-year-old if he decides against a contract extension at the Bernabeu.
The Latest: O’Rourke makes Isco claim…
Speaking to GiveMeSport, O’Rourke has backed this transfer claim coming out of Spurs, sharing his belief that Isco may have in fact been ‘put to Tottenham’.
He explained: “Isco, a talented playmaker and seemingly on the market at Real Madrid. I’m sure he’s probably been put to Tottenham.”
The Verdict: Avoid…
At 29 years of age and having started just 10 La Liga matches in total for Real Madrid since the beginning of 2020/21, we advise Spurs and their manager Antonio Conte to give Isco a miss.
He has cut a bit-part figure in the Spanish capital recently and targets such as Kulusevski, who is far younger and more versatile, represent better value in the long-term.
Earning a reported £200,000 per week – the same as Spurs’ leading earner Harry Kane – Isco’s wage demands could also be too much financially, with the negatives far outweighing the positives over a move.
