Gunners boss not pursuing world class attacker.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has appeared to rule out a move for Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco as his side do not need the Spaniard, according to the Daily Star.
The Gunners boss is known for being something of a frugal customer in the transfer market, and seems to have no intention of rivaling the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United for the signing of the former Malaga star.
Isco is widely regarded as one of the top playmakers in Europe at the moment and could surely fit Arsenal’s style of play perfectly, but Wenger has hinted that he is focusing on defensive additions this January.
Lukas Podolski has left the club this month in a loan move to Inter Milan, but that still doesn’t look like persuading Wenger to bring in a replacement in the attacking midfield department.
Speaking on rumours of interest in Isco, the Frenchman said: “No we are not on the case. We have plenty of creative players.
“We are short on the defensive side of our game not on the offensive side.
“We have plenty of offensive players, we just spoke about Podolski who went out on [on loan], we were just speaking about Sanogo going out because we have so many offensive players who don’t get a chance to play so we wouldn’t buy somebody else in the attack.”
