The Spanish international has been in superb form for Carlo Ancelotti’s side this season, showing himself to be one of the team’s most important players after initially struggling in his first season at the Bernabeu last year.
Isco first caught the eye at La Liga side Malaga, looking like potentially one of the best young players in the world and attracting interest from all over Europe.
Arsenal are now showing an interest in signing the 22-year-old again, with Arsene Wenger keen to swoop for the skillful talent who looks like he’d suit the Gunners’ style of play perfectly.
Arsenal already have many options in the attacking midfield department, but could do well to bring in Isco as an upgrade on the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky.
