Arsenal and Everton set for January transfer battle over Real Madrid star Isco with Juventus and Inter also keen

ARSENAL and Everton are believed to be ready to battle it out for Real Madrid playmaker Isco next month.

The 28-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu for months after falling out of favour.

Since the start of the 2018/19 campaign he has started less than 30 times in LaLiga, with just three of those coming this term.

He is believed to have already been told by Zinedine Zidane he should look for a move once the transfer window re-opens in January.

Mundo Deportivo reports a switch to the Premier League looks the most likely option for the midfielder.

And it also claims that it is Arsenal and Everton who are the teams most interested in signing him.

But the English duo will also face strong competition from Italy for Isco.

Both Juventus and Inter Milan are also eyeing a swoop for the winger.

Neither the Gunners or Toffees are believed to have submitted a formal offer for the ace so far.

But both are readying an offer to try and bring him to England over the coming weeks, according to reports.

Isco, under contract until June 2022, joined Real Madrid from Malaga back in 2013 and has made over 300 appearances for Los Blancos.

During that time he has produced 51 goals and 55 assists, although he has only registered one this term.

Arsenal have also been linked with a swoop for ex-Chelsea striker Diego Costa on a free after Atletico Madrid allegedly agreed to rip up his contract next month.
