Report: Arsenal could now battle Tottenham in bid to sign 'magic' 5x Champions League winner
Reports in Spain are claiming Sevilla could look to sell Isco already, with The Sun claiming it will put Arsenal and Tottenham on red alert.
A report from Marca today claims that the Spanish side are far from happy with their summer signing and are considering selling him on already. The Sun adds further to the report, suggesting that both Arsenal and Spurs will be keen on Isco, thanks to their past interest.
Isco, who has won five Champions League titles with Real Madrid in an illustrious career, was moved on in the summer by Los Blancos. However, his name is well known when it comes to the Premier League.
Arsenal have held a long-term interest in Isco. Indeed, it was only around this time last year that Mikel Arteta was being heavily linked with signing the Spaniard. As we know, nothing happened and since then, the Gunners have made smart moves in the market.
Tottenham were also linked with a move for Isco in the summer.
Whether or not either of the North London duo would be keen on Isco now, remains to be seen. Despite being lauded as ‘magic’ by Mauricio Pochettino, Isco – now 30 – does seems to have left his best days behind him.
TBR’s View: It’s surely a no for Isco
There was a time when signing Isco would have been welcomed with open arms by both Tottenham and Arsenal. But not now, surely.
Isco looks well past his best and there’s a reason why Madrid allowed him to move on as well. Of course, he is a hugely talented footballer who has had a fine career.
But in terms of what Arsenal or Spurs need right now, he doesn’t tick the boxes. This one should be parked in the not going to happen list.
