It appears Arsenal will have to do some off field battle, and this time they are expected to flex their financial muscle to oust their rivals.
The Gunners were initially reported to be front-runners in the race for Real Madrid’s forward Isco. However, fresh reports suggest that their Manchester City are also on course to sign the versatile attacker – matter of factly, they are the strongest contender for his signature.
The reports linking the 23-year-old to the North London club kicked off from where it stopped in the summer and it was even speculated that Wenger had sanctioned the move for the player, via the metro.
However, we are made to understand that he may make the England move in the January transfer window but to the Etihads.
Isco has been a long term target of Wenger, even before his move to Madrid and we all thought that the manager would utilise the lack of understanding between him and his current club to his favour.
The transfer window is yet to open and nothing has been confirmed yet so we have to wish the rumors are spurious since City will definitely have the advantage in the EPL title push with a player of Isco’s quality in their team.
