Arsenal are reportedly in the hunt to sign Real Madrid superstar Isco.
The Sun claim the Gunners want to take advantage of the player’s fractured relationship with Santiago Solari and beat competition from Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
Interestingly, Unai Emery was the man who gave Isco his big break in football.
The Spanish coach handed him his first-team debut at Valencia back in 2010.
It certainly looks as though the player could be on the move soon; he has barely featured for Real under Solari.
The player recently failed to acknowledge Solari following a 3-0 defeat to Eibar, which Marca claims was the reason he was left out entirely against AS Roma in the Champions League.
Arsenal could boast the next Cazorla
If Arsenal successfully signed Isco, it would be a major coup.
The 26-year-old is undoubtedly one of the finest players in Europe on top form and would take Emery’s side to the next level.
Signing Isco would go some way to replacing Santi Cazorla, who left the club at the end of last season.
The maestro struggled with various injury problems during his six-year stint at the club, but mesmerised when he was on the pitch.
His technical ability was second to very few, and many Arsenal fans are of the opinion that he was one of the best Arsene Wenger signings.
Isco is a huge talent and possesses very similar attributes to Cazorla. He is a brilliant ball-carrier with incredible vision just like his fellow countryman.
There’s a chance that under Emery’s guidance, Isco would be able to reach even higher levels than the Villarreal man ever did.
