In one of the most surprising transfer rumours of the year, Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco now have a new suitor in the Premier League.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City have both been linked with the highly-rated Spaniard as of late, and it’s now claimed that West Ham United are joining the party.
According to Spanish news outlet Don Balon, West Ham have made an opening offer of £79million for Isco in a move that would smash the Hammer previous transfer record of around £25m for Marko Arnautovic, as reported by BBC Sport when he joined the Hammers.
Unsurprisingly, the report states that the Real Madrid Champions League winner has no interest in joining West Ham, so they’ve been put firmly back in their bid to sign the Spaniard.
Still, it’s always worth a shot and London has proven an attracting home for many footballers across the globe in recent years, with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur generally able to punch above their weight in the transfer market due to their location.
Isco to West Ham, however, looks a step too far for the time being, though we could still see him in England some time soon.
Diario Gol have reported recently of strong interest from City, while another report from Spanish outlet Don Balon claimed United could be willing to part with David de Gea in order to land the playmaker.
