The Mirror are reporting that Spurs are interested in signing attacking midfielder Isco from Real Madrid.

Isco was heavily linked with a move to Manchester City before he left Malaga for Real Madrid three years ago. Tottenham are apparently interested in taking Isco, who cost Madrid £25 million, on a season-long loan.

Bringing in the 24-year-old playmaker would represent a sensational swoop for Spurs, who have only acquired squad players so far in the current window rather than any certain starters.

Isco would surely start most games for Tottenham, but where would that leave Christian Eriksen? The Dane needs competition but it’s likely Isco would expect to start in the No. 10 position ahead of Eriksen, which could cause conflict.

Here’s how Spurs fans reacted to the story.
