Arsenal favourites to land top quality £33.8m La Liga playmaker

Arsenal are at the front of the queue for Real Madrid’s £33.8m-rated midfielder Isco’s signature, according to reports from AS.

The Spain international has been at the Bernabeu since the summer of 2013, but despite his billing as one of the best young players in La Liga, he’s largely struggled to carve out his own role in Los Blancos’ star-studded squad.

And reports claim that Arsene Wenger is ready to lure him to London in January, with a series of injuries having reduced his options in the final third.

The likes of Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott have all been sidelined of late, threatening to de-rail an impressive start to the season at the Emirates Stadium.

It’s understood that the likes of Juventus and Manchester City are also keen on the 23-year-old, but that the player himself sees Arsenal as the best option for his career,

Isco is eager to play regularly in a bid to ensure he makes it into Spain’s EURO 2016 squad.
