Tottenham are trying to signing Real Madrid’s Isco before the transfer window shuts tonight – and supporters have reacted with surprise on Twitter.

Mauricio Pochettino has personally phoned the Spanish playmaker to enquire about his services and try to lure him to White Hart Lane by the deadline-day cut-off.

Spanish outlet AS are reporting that Los Blancos are willing to let the playmaker leave on a season-long loan before the transfer window closes at 11pm on Wednesday night.

The report suggests that the 24-year-old wants a move away from Real, but may be more keen on a move to his old club Malaga, who have also registered interest in resigning Isco on a loan deal.

The Mirror reported that Spurs are keen on capturing Isco on an initial loan deal until the end of the season.

It is said that the north Londoners would have the option to sign Isco on a permanent basis if his loan spell is successful at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham fans are excited about the possibility of landing a player of Isco’s calibre but are sceptical about whether their club could land such a leading player in the final hours of the window.
