Juventus prepare £28m bid to sign Arsenal midfield target

Juventus have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Real Madrid star Isco, according to reports from the Daily Star.

Isco was heavily linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu during the summer, with the Gunners and Manchester City both keen on the Spain international.

But the 23-year-old decided to stay with the La Liga giants when Rafa Benitez took charge of the club to compete for a first-team spot.

However, Isco has once again struggled to play on a consistent basis with the likes of Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, and Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of him in the pecking order.

During the weekend, the midfielder was only able to make a substitute appearance against Barcelona in their 4-0 defeat, getting sent off in the process.

And according to Italian source Tuttosport, Juve are ready to come in with a £28million bid to bring the frustrated star to the Juventus Stadium.

The move could therefore alert Arsenal, who may sign Isco to cover  for the high number of injured attacking midfielders in the roster.
