Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Terry Gibson has admitted that he would love to see Isco make the switch to North London.

The Spanish international has not started a game for Real Madrid in La Liga since October and was once again named among the substitutes for last night’s Copa del Rey semi-final first leg against rivals Barcelona.

Isco, 26, has failed to make an impact under new boss Santiago Solari, with his last start coming for the Spanish giants in former boss Julen Lopetegui’s last match in charge when they were hammered 5-1 at the Nou Camp.

The midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs in previous seasons, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side coming close to landing his services in 2016, according to the Daily Mirror.

Isco has a £700m release clause with his contract due to expire in 2022, but could be forced to reconsider his future in the summer of the lack of game time continues and jeopardises his place in the national side.

Gibson appeared as a guest on talkSPORT’s Hawskbee and Jacobs show (6 February, 3.30pm) and said: “Isco I think he’s waiting to see if he lasts longer than the manager. I think that’s the only issue there,” 

“We’d take him at Spurs.”
