Arsenal on red alert after Spanish attacker drops move hint
According to a report in the Express, Arsenal have been put on red alert after Isco admitted that he may be forced to leave Real Madrid this summer in search of regular first team football.
Isco has long been linked with a move to Arsenal and the speculation is intensifying over a possible switch after another frustrating campaign for the Spanish international at Madrid.
The 24-year-old has struggled to establish himself as a regular under boss Zinedine Zidane this term with Isco making just 11 league starts so far.
The lack of playing time is clearly getting to the player as Isco has now admitted that while he’s content at the Bernabeu, he’ll consider his future at the end of the season as he’s currently not getting enough minutes.
Isco is quoted as saying by the Express:
“I’m calm. What worries me is to have minutes, a player’s career is small.
“I’m happy here and would stay many more years.
“From now until the end of the season, we will make a decision. It is my future at stake.”
The playmaker’s contract is approaching it’s final 12 months and Isco is unlikely to sign an extension unless his situation changes over the coming months.
Therefore, Madrid may be forced to sell this summer if the player makes it clear he wants a new challenge and the Express suggest that Arsenal are among the clubs interested.
Isco is a huge talent and I don’t think he’s been given a proper chance to fulfill his potential at Madrid so I’d love to see him come to north London at the end of the season.
Obviously it won’t be easy to win the race for his signature as I’m sure there will be plenty of competition but we have the financial muscle to compete with the big-boys, so let’s hope we make a serious play for Isco if he comes on the market.
