Arsenal are one of the clubs mentioned with the Independent claiming that the Gunners are ready to do a swap deal with European champions Real Madrid and it will involve the duo of Isco Alcaron and Mesut Ozil.
Chelsea and Liverpool have also been mentioned as possible transfer destinations for Isco.
The 26-year-old is said to be unsettled at Real Madrid after falling out of favour with manager Santiago Solari.
The Spanish international playmaker was one of the players expected to step up at Real Madrid this season following the summer exit of Cristiano Ronaldo but he has failed to do so.
