Real Madrid midfielder Isco is considering his future at the club, and Arsenal are one of the clubs ‘waiting in the wings’ for him.
That’s according to Eduardo Inda of El Chiringuito, relayed by Diario Madridista, who says the Gunners are one of four teams who could offer the Spaniard an escape route.
He explains that the midfielder is weighing up the idea of leaving the Bernabeu come January, having failed to enjoy ‘prominence’ under Carlo Ancelotti.
As a player of undeniable talent, he is attracting the interest of several clubs in Europe, who are all waiting for him to make a ‘definitive decision’ about his future.
Arsenal are one of those ‘in the race’, and there’s a feeling he would ‘fit in quite well’ at the Emirates should he make the move.
Joining the Gunners would mean a step down for him on a competitive level at this point, but Asensio has spoken to Dani Ceballos about the club and received positive references.
He ‘counts’ on these when considering the move; in other words, he’s heard good things and would be willing to make the step down to get regular playing time.
First, though, he has to definitively decide to leave Madrid before Arsenal can make their move.
That’s looking increasingly likely given his situation under Ancelotti. A lack of game time is something he’s not happy about and has shown as well, with a recent snub against Sheriff having ‘revived’ the idea of leaving, which has been on his mind for several months already.
