Arsenal are being linked with a move for Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco by the Daily Express. The former-Malaga star is reported rated in the £45millon bracket by the Spanish giants, who on Wednesday night exited the Champions League at the semi-final stage.

The 23-year-old signed for Real on the back of his superb displays for Malaga, but as an attacking midfielder.

The Spaniard is only 20, but is highly rated in the Arsenal camp, and has a manager in Arsene Wenger who will give him the chance to impress. A former Spanish U17 international, Toral recently signed a new deal with the Londoners as a result of his form in the Championship, which shows they have plans for him in the side.
