Carlo Ancelotti welcomed in 21 year old Isco from Malaga last June but the young Spanish international has apparently demanded more playing time, which has led to talk of a possible exit from the La Liga side, with former boss Manuel Pellegrini taking a keen interest in signing his former charge.
Arsenal will look to beat Man City in any race to sign Isco, who has started 15 La Liga fixtures, but crucially only half Real Madrid’s Champions League matches this term, but Wenger knows it will take a hefty fee to land the attacking midfielder.
Wenger is apparently interested in signing Isco so as to use him in a forward role, due chiefly to the number of creative midfield options he already possesses.
