Real Madrid's Isco has been on the radar of top English Premier League clubs, including Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea and Arsenal's manager, Arsene Wenger has made the Spaniard his number one target.
The Real Madrid star signed for the La Liga giants from Malaga in 2013. Despite a number of high-profiled players in the team, Isco has performed decently well in whatever chances he has got.
The Metro reported that the player just made ten 90-minute La Liga appearances last season, and just seven so far this season.
If Arsene Wenger guarantees a start to the Spaniard, the Gunners could possibly get their target.
Arsenal are ready to break the bank and sign the Real Madrid star, as they prepare an audacious bid of £64 million, reports The Daily Star.
This is not for the first time that Wenger has shown interest in a Real Madrid player, as the Gunners broke their club transfer record after signing Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid for £42.5m in 2013.
The German during the time also became the third most expensive signing in British football history, though, the player failed to live upto the expectations.
Arsenal cannot afford another flop signing with such money at the offing. It could cost the Frenchman his managerial job.
If Wenger manages to sign the 22-year-old, he would break Ozil's transfer record by quite a distance, and needs to play a pivotal role for the Gunners in the remainder of the season.
The Gunners already have a host number of players, who could play a similar role so how would Isco fit into Arsenal's competitive squad?
With a number of Spanish players plying their trade in the English Premier League successfully such as Santi Cazrola, Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa, there is no reason as to why would such a highly rated Madrid star fail.
Though Isco's presence in Arsenal's squad could prove to be a selection headache, Wenger would not mind a 'problem of plenty' situation with a number of good players to choose from.
He is one of the most skilful players on the planet. He is said to possess a great vision and an eye for making those threading passes to strikers.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are not the only club in the market to sign the Spanish player, asManchester City are also keeping a close tab on Isco, as the Spaniard's inclusion could bolster their squad as well.
