Arsenal and Manchester City are both keen on bringing Real Madrid midfielder Isco to the Premier League, according to reports from Spain.

The 27-year-old, who moved to the Spanish capital in 2013, has been a key part of the side over the past six years but has only started five La Liga games so far this term.

According to Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo, Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane is struggling to fit Isco into his side and as such could be willing to let him leave the club.

The source adds that with Arsenal boss Unai Emery not keen on Mesut Ozil, the Spanish boss sees compatriot Isco as a natural replacement for the former Germany international, who made only his third appearance of the season on Wednesday.

However, Mundo Deportivo adds that City are also interested and with two clubs set to be in the running, it is reported that Madrid believe they can get £60m for Isco’s services.

City boss Pep Guardiola realises that with David Silva set to leave the club at the end of the season, he needs to freshen up his squad with another creative midfielder and likes the look of Isco.

Arsenal and City face Wolves and Southampton, respectively, in the Premier League this weekend.
