Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
If reports according to Spanish news outlet are anything to go by, then we’ve been handed a major boost in the pursuit of Real Madrid creative playmaker Isco.
The report according to AS claimed that Arsenal and Manchester United are reportedly weighing up a January swoop deal for the Madrid out-of-favour playmaker.
Isco is down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu under French manager Zinedine Zidane and he is said to be considering exit during the January transfer window to return his career on tracks.
Thus far Spain international has made just two La Liga appearances and both of them has been as a sub – and his only start came in the Super Cup win over Sevilla at the end of pre-season.
Earlier this month British outlet The Sun also reported that Red Devils are ready to offer the Spaniard an escape route.
Old Trafford chiefs are said to view Isco as an attainable mid-season target.
The playmaker is reportedly valued at around £25m and has less than two years left to run on his current Real deal.
His arrival in Manchester could cast further doubt over the long-term future of Wayne Rooney, after recent reports suggested that England international captain is surplus of requirements for Jose Mourinho.
