Isco set for Premier League switch?

Isco, 26, developed into an integral part of the Real first-team squad under the management of Zinedine Zidane and retained a key role under his successor Julen Lopetegui before his eventual sacking last month.

However, his alleged attitude problems under new head coach Solari has seen his prospect of retaining his role as a key player significantly diminish - which has been highlighted not earning a single start under the Argentine.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham are now lining up a potential bidding war when the transfer window re-opens in January, according to English publication, The Sun.

While Isco's unprofessionalism has previously caused issues for Los Blancos in the past, it remains to be seen whether club President Florentino Perez is willing to negotiate a seamless exit to England as Solari's recent reward of a permanent contract is by no means an indication of a long-term future at the LaLiga giants.
