Arsenal are said to be in a three-way battle for the right to sign exciting Real Madrid playmaker Isco when the transfer window reopens at the start of next month.

Spanish international star Isco has not been able to meet up with the huge expectations placed on his shoulders this season.

The 26-year-old has struggled to light up the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu this season despite the exit of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer.

His Real Madrid situation has prompted transfer talks to the Premier League.

The Sun claims that the London trio of Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Chelsea are heavily interested in a move for the former Malaga star.

It could take as much €90m for any club to prise him away from Real Madrid.

Isco was expected to be one of the main men at Real Madrid following the exit of Ronaldo but he has failed in that regard.

The Spaniard has even been left out of the Real Madrid starting XI on a consistent basis under Santiago Solari since the Argentine replaced former Spanish national team Julen Lopetegui earlier in the season.

Ronaldo is a Juventus player after joining from Real Madrid in a club-record fee believed to be around €100m.
