Arsenal are set to make a £45million offer for Real Madrid creative midfield ace Isco after watching him and his side crash out of the Champions League semi-final this week, according to the Metro.
The Spanish international is rumoured to have fallen out with boss Carlo Ancelotti and is set to be made available this summer – something that the Gunners are all too aware of.
Premier League rivals Liverpool are also said to be keen on snapping him up, but reports in the Daily Express are claiming that Wenger does not want to miss out and will launch a £45million bid to ensure that he makes his way to north London.
An offer of such a size would likely be enough to tempt the Spanish giants to sell, though any move would likely anger the club’s fans.
Many Gunners fans would also be left wondering why Arsene Wenger feels he needs another diminutive pass master when he already has several.
