Tottenham Hotspur could learn later this week if rumoured long-term target Isco will be made available for sale by Real Madrid, according to The Mirror.
The North Londoners have been linked with a move for the Spanish midfielder as far back as 2016, when Mauricio Pochettino was said to have been ‘ultra keen’ to bring him to the club (Marca).
The 29-year-old is expected to meet with new head coach Carlo Ancelotti to understand if he is in the plans of the former Everton boss.
Isco, who is also on Arsenal’s radar is now within the last twelve months of his contract in the Spanish capital and could sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign side during the winter transfer window.
The playmaker found himself as a bit-part player under former boss Zinedine Zidane last season having only started in eight of his twenty-five La Liga appearances (transfermarkt).
Isco would be a brilliant signing for Tottenham who have lacked a creative spark since Christian Eriksen left for Inter Milan. It seems as if every transfer window, the Spanish international is linked with a move to Spurs but it always fails to materialise.
He is likely to have a lot of interest in his services, from clubs who could not only offer higher wages but in all probability, Champions League football.
