According to a recent report from Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal are ready and willing to pay the €60 million asking price to sign Isco from Real Madrid.
Mikel Arteta wants to try and add some creativity into his ranks during the January transfer window which, based on the last few weeks, they could desperately use.
Isco is quite obviously ready to leave Real Madrid and has been for quite some time, but there are plenty of clubs in the running for his signature. If he takes one look at the Gunners’ recent record then he will probably think twice about going over to the Emirates, but if he wants to be the focal point behind their revival, he could decide to take the risk.
Arsenal aren’t afraid to spend big money but perhaps their priority in January needs to be getting rid of the stars as opposed to bringing new ones into a tough environment.
