Arsenal are locked in a battle with Juventus and Manchester City over the signature of Real Madrid ace Isco, according to reports.
Isco had been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu during the summer, but reports in Spain [via talkSport] suggest the trio are keen in luring the 23-year-old away from the La Liga next summer.
Juventus were understood to have enquired over the avilability of Isco during the summer transfer window, but Real Madrid rejected the approach.
The Serie A club will face strong competition from Arsenal and Manchester City, but it remains to be seen if the latter maintains its interest in the Spanish international following a big summer of spending.
Isco is reportedly Juventus’ number one transfer target, with the Italian club looking to bolster its midfield options following the departures of Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal.
The 23-year-old has made 68 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid since joining the club from Malaga in 2013.
