Real Madrid playmaker Isco could move to the Premier League in the New transfer market which opens in the next few days according to the report from the stables of the Daily Star.
It was revealed that the long-term Manchester United target is the subject of a brewing transfer battle between London clubs Arsenal and Chelsea.
Isco could be available for just £44m in the January transfer window according to Mark Taylor of the Daily Star.
He has been on the outskirts of the Real Madrid first team this season and has been restricted to just five league starts mainly due to injury issues and the form of Federico Valverde in the midfield section at the club.

Uruguayan international star Federico Valverde has been able to form a potent midfield partnership with both Toni Kroos and Casemiro thus limiting the impact of more experienced players like 2018 Ballon d’Or Award recipient Luka Modric and Isco.
Chelsea would be able to afford his transfer fee with manager Frank Lampard expected to be handed a warchest of around £150m to make up for a summer of not signing players because of a transfer ban that has since been lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
On their part, Arsenal may push for a loan deal for Isco rather than a permanent transfer.
