Tottenham’s reported pursuit of Real Madrid star Isco has made it onto the front page of today’s edition of Spanish newspaper AS, with it touted that the playmaker will sign for Spurs or former club Malaga.
Reports in the press have emerged int event days that the North London club are interested in the Spain international, with Mauricio Pochettino believed to have spoken to the superstar on the phone.
Isco has fallen down the pecking order at Madrid and is not guaranteed first-team action if he stays in his homeland.

As can be seen above, AS believe that it is a straight decision for the diminutive schemer between his former club Malaga and a switch to White Hart Lane.
Spurs will need to break the bank to land Isco and his wages may well be an issue given the pay structure at the Premier League club.
Excitement will surely be rising in Tottenham’s supporter base but it is seemingly down to Daniel Levy to conclude a deal for the sublimely gifted star.
