North London giants Arsenal are eyeing a stunning double swoop on European champions and World Club Cup holders Real Madrid.

Arsenal Station claim that the Gunners want to sign the unsettled Real Madrid duo of Isco and Keylor Navas.

It was revealed that Real Madrid officials value Spanish international player Isco Alarcon at around £100m and the Gunners are ready to do a swap deal involving Mesut Ozil.

Isco and Ozil have not had the best of times in the last one month at Real Madrid and Arsenal respectively and a move could be the best option to revive their ailing careers.

Isco has lost his starting spot in the Real Madrid under Santiago Solari and the same can be said of 2014 World Cup winner Mesut Ozil who was surprisingly dropped from the Arsenal squad of 18 ahead of the Carabao Cup defeat at the hands of North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Ozil is the highest paid player at Arsenal with a financial salary of £350,000 on a weekly basis but he’s not guaranteed a spot in the Arsenal team under Unai Emery.

The aforementioned publication also said that the Gunners are eyeing a move for Costa Rican international shot stopper Keylor Navas as a long-term replacement for the ageing Petr Cech.

It could take as much as £12.6m to sign Keylor Navas who has lost his place in the Real Madrid XI following the summer arrival of Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.
