English Premier League top side Arsenal has resumed their interest in Real Madrid and Spanish star player Isco. According to reports, Isco has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu for many seasons without a transfer materialising.
Arsenal Wants Isco to Replace Pepe
The 29-year-old has been unable to make a starting lineup for Real Madrid under their new manager Carlo Ancelotti or his predecessor, Zinedine Zidane, and exit speculation may finally be gathering momentum. According to Spanish media, Arsenal has entered talks with Isco’s representatives ahead of his contract’s expiry next summer.
The four-time Champions League winner has only started two games this season, and he missed all of October’s games with a back injury. Meanwhile, Gunner head coach Mikel Arteta is prepared to let their highest signing Nicolas Pepe leave to make way for the Spanish star.
Arteta appears to favour Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe on the flanks in a 4-4-2 system, leaving the club-record signing out of the frame. Newcastle United, Everton and Crystal Palace have all shown interest in the former Lille star player should Arsenal let go.
