Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a January move for Real Madrid attacker Isco.
The 28-year-old has made seven La Liga appearances for Los Blancos this season but has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the side, leading to suggestions that he could move on at the start of 2021.
Everton have been strongly linked with the Spaniard, who has scored 51 times and registered 54 assists in 314 appearances for Madrid since joining the club from Malaga.
However, according to Defensa Central, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has urged his board to move for the playmaker when the January transfer window opens for business.
The report claims that the Gunners could sign Isco on an initial loan deal with an option to make the move permanent at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
The former Valencia youngster, who only has 18 months left to run on his contract with Zinedine Zidane’s side, has won two La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns during his time at the Bernabeu.
