Charles Watts, the Arsenal correspondent for Goal, has been discussing the rumours linking Real Madrid’s Isco with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
According to El Confidencial (via Sport Witness), Real Madrid are thought to be ‘waiting’ for an approach from the likes of Arsenal for the midfielder.
“I’ve certainly not heard anything to suggest Arsenal are really looking at Isco, and even the reports and the rumours that are being bandied about on social media, and the stories that are being written about it aren’t saying that Arsenal are interested.
“It’s more saying that Real Madrid are hoping Arsenal become interested and almost push up the price for Isco, who it looks like they’re quite happy to move on. I’ve not seen anything of any substance from a media outlet even saying that Arsenal want to sign Isco. It’s more that Real Madrid are hoping to get Arsenal involved in a bidding process.”

TIF Thoughts on Charles Watts’ comments regarding Isco…
Considering Arsenal haven’t scored a goal in open play in the Premier League since their win over Sheffield United back at the start of October, you could argue they could do with the creativity of a player such as Isco – who is renowned for his ability to play through balls and key passes (as per WhoScored).
