Tottenham Hotspur are set to be offered Real Madrid midfielder Isco during the current transfer window, according to The Mirror’s transfer live update (02/01 – 10:46).
The report claims that the Spanish giants will offer the 29-year-old to Antonio Conte’s side within the next two weeks, should he decide to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.
Isco is set to be out of contract at Real during the summer and as things stand, the January window represents the final opportunity for the La Liga outfit to recoup a transfer fee unless he puts pen to paper on a contract extension.
Sources close to the Spanish international claim that Isco will assess how much game time he is given during three upcoming fixtures in light of the Covid situation at the club at present.
Isco has only started two La Liga matches under Carlo Ancelotti this season, having seen his season also interrupted by injury and coronavirus, with the report claiming that he does not form part of the Italian’s long-term plans.
The playmaker has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs on a number of occasions in the past, when in 2016 Mauricio Pochettino was said to have attempted to have brought him to the Premier League on loan (Independent).
Speculation linking Isco with a move to Tottenham is going to etch his name in other transfers which failed to materialise including the likes of Leandro Damiao and Rivaldo. It seems that during every window, he never fails to be on the radar of Spurs.
There’s no doubt that he would be a quality addition to the side, especially for a cut-price fee due to his contract situation.
