The Sun have revealed that Tottenham and Arsenal are now both on ‘red alert’ after Sevilla have decided to cash in on Isco in January.

Isco’s nine-year spell at Real Madrid came to an end just this summer when his contract at the Spanish capital ran out and he subsequently signed a two-year deal with Sevilla.

The attacking midfielder would have hoped to get his career back on track at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium but things have not worked out that way, with the 30-year-old having just two assists and no goals to his name in 12 league appearances this season (Transfermarkt).

Marca reported a few days ago that Isco is set to depart Sevilla just six months on from signing for the club after a confrontation with the club’s director of football Monchi.

The Spanish side have allegedly made up their minds to move the midfielder on in January as they do not intend to tolerate ‘any lack of discipline or respect’.

Marca added that a potential move to the Premier League could open up for Isco, with Julen Lopetegui backed to try and reunite with the player at Wolves.

The Sun have now suggested that Tottenham and Arsenal could also make a move for the former Real Madrid man, following the latest developments in Seville.

The report asserts that the two North London clubs explored a move for Isco in the summer and could reignite their interest in the player in January.

Spurs Web Opinion

Isco does not strike me as being a Conte kind of player, owing to his lack of work rate off the ball and his general tactical indiscipline.

The news of his reported attitude problems at Sevilla might also discourage Spurs from making a move for the 30-year-old, given the value that the Tottenham head coach puts on disciple and commitment.
