Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson has said that Tottenham should try and sign Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco.
The Spanish midfielder has struggled to get game time at the Santiago Bernabeu this seasons amidst rumors that he has fallen out with manager Santiago Solari.
Speculation has been running rife in the Spanish press suggesting that Isco is looking for a way out of the club in the January transfer window. The Independent claim that Arsenal are one of the clubs interested in the 26-year-old and want to do a swap deal with Real Madrid with Mesut Ozil going the other way.
Merson, however, reckons that Spurs should look to hijack the deal for the Spanish international. Speaking on Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports, he said “They talk about Isco leaving Real Madrid. I think he fits Tottenham.
“I think Tottenham should be a team going for him. A top quality player, top standard. They never go in for that kind of player.”
Tottenham have been rumored to have had an interest in singing Isco for several years, but it remains to be seen if the North London club will go for him in January.
While singing Isco will be a real statement of intent from Daniel Levy, Spurs are well stocked in the attacking midfielder/wide forward position with the likes of Dele, Eriksen, Lamela, Son, and Moura all putting in good performances this season.
