According to Fichajes and the Daily Express, Real Madrid midfielder Isco has told club president Florentino Perez that he has had enough at the Santiago Bernabeu and that he needs a change of scenery.
The 23-year-old playmaker from Benalmádena has drifted in and out of trainer Rafa Benitez’s starting XI, due to the fact he has not scored, and now faces still opposition from summer signing Mateo Kovacic from Inter Milan.
What Isco wants is to secure a first team start each week, and doesn’t care whether it is with another La Liga side or with a team in the English Premiership.
The former Malaga star would not come cheap though with Real Madrid expected to ask £35 million for the Spanish international who in the past has been linked with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger hardly spent during the summer, and the thought of being able to play Isco alongside Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez must surely temp the 66-year-old Frenchman into making a bid should the Spanish giants make him available in January.
