Report: Tottenham could make January return for 24-year-old playmaker

By Harvey Byrne

Tottenham could return in January with a loan bid for Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco, according to a report.

The Mirror claims that Spurs are still interested in the 24-year-old Spain international, despite the star’s recent run in the Madrid side.

The midfield playmaker has started five of the last six games for the Champions League holders since complaining of a lack of first-team action earlier in the season.

He even bagged two goals for Zinedine Zidane’s side during the 6-1 win over Real Betis earlier in the month, as he looks to establish himself as a key part in the European giants’ midfield.

However, the Galacticos are yet to offer the 14-time capped international a new deal with his current one set to expire in 2018.

Spurs, who remain five games without a win in all competitions, reportedly made an enquiry for Isco during the summer transfer window but did not pursue their interest.

However, with Mauricio Pochettino still a big fan of the playmaker, it is stated that the north London outfit could look to strike another deal for the Spaniard in the winter window.

It is claimed that London rivals Chelsea could also make a move if Real indicate they are willing to sell him.

In other Tottenham transfer news, the club are in advanced talks to agree a £15million deal ahead of the January transfer window.
