Tottenham can make statement of intent by signing Real Madrid star Isco

The 27-year-old has reportedly been told by the Spanish giants that he isn’t required for next season.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will enter the transfer market this summer looking for quality additions to bolster his ranks.

The Argentine led his team to the Champions League Final during the 2018/19 campaign, despite not adding a single player to his squad.

Not since Lucas Moura arrived from PSG in January 2018 have Spurs signed a player.

That looks like changing this summer, however.

The club embarks on a first full season in their new home and they will need players to reciprocate the quality of the stadium.

 

Several names have been linked with Spurs so far. It is fair to suggest that Pochettino would love to get his hands on a stellar recruit or two.

As a result, Spurs should do everything they can to land Real Madrid playmaker Isco, with Marca reporting that he has been deemed surplus to requirements by boss Zinedine Zidane.

Pochettino would be wise to try and land the Spaniard. He represents an upgrade on the vast majority of his other midfield options. He’d also represent a quality replacement for Christian Eriksen; should he choose to leave.

Isco is paid £115k-a-week at the Bernabeu, according to Silly Season. On the basis that Madrid aren’t keen to keep him, a reasonable transfer fee should also be easy to negotiate.

In 277 appearances for the La Liga giants, Isco has scored 48 goals and registered 52 assists. He has earned 36 caps for Spain during his career too.

His arrival in North London could really put Spurs on the map. After losing 20 games in all competitions this season, Pochettino will be looking for improvements.

Isco’s arrival would issue a statement of intent to their Premier League rivals.
