Isco’s performance against Juventus should force Tottenham Hotspur to take notice

Tottenham Hotspur have had no shortage of options up front this season, with Harry Kane leading the line, while Son Heung-min and Dele Alli have also chipped in with goals.

However, in the middle of the park, it only tends to be Christian Eriksen who can add to the goal tally.

The Dane has netted nine times in 31 Premier League outings, while the likes of Mousa Dembele, Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko have netted just once between them.

Granted, manager Mauricio Pochettino has utilised the trio’s defensive attributes at times this season, but the Argentine could do with an extra attack-minded midfielder in the pack.

The future of Real Madrid star Isco has been a talking point in recent months due to the fact that the Spaniard has started just 18 La Liga matches this season under manager Zinedine Zidane.

A recent report in Don Balon claimed that Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Juventus are interested in signing the 25-year-old, who is believed to be deliberating over an exit this summer.

Tottenham should enter the mix as Isco has the attributes that would certainly fit into Pochettino’s system, and would potentially allow the playmaker to thrive.

Supporters of the North London outfit have made it clear on social media in the past that Isco would be a positive addition to the team.

Against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday night, Los  Blancos were not at their best, but some late penalty drama resulted in Zidane’s side progressing into the semi-finals 4-3 on aggregate.

Isco played the full game, which ended 3-1 to Juve, and on an individual level the Spaniard performed well.

Isco stats in match against Juventus

The 27-capped international created the second-most shots on goal, with penalty scorer Cristiano Ronaldo producing more (6).

Isco was also second to Toni Kroos in the amount of key passes made, and his accuracy on the ball was almost perfect.

The Spaniard would present another option for Pochettino in an attacking midfield position, which is where he has played 20 of his matches this season.

In addition, Isco could also be used more centrally having scored one goal and created two assists in five appearances in that role for Madrid.
