Real Madrid midfielder Isco has regularly been linked with a move to North London, ever since his days with Malaga, but it finally appears that there could be some movement at the end of the current season.
The Mirror reports Isco has revealed his frustration at a lack of opportunities in the Spanish capital, handing a boost to Arsenal in their quest to land the 24-year-old as the ideal long-term replacement for the ageing Santi Cazorla.
Cazorla, currently injured and now 32, doesn’t have too many years left in him and Arsenal’s struggles without the veteran this season prove they’ll need to find a replacement- and the statistics show Isco can be that man.
In 17 appearances this season, Isco boasts an impressive record of five goals and five assists. However, his passing accuracy of a phenomenal 90% is the figure that suggests he can slot into the Gunners midfield to replace Cazorla.
With 1.1 shots per game on average and 0.3 aerial duels won, Isco would certainly need the right partner alongside him at the Emirates Stadium to excel but the Gunners are far from short on midfield options.
