Tottenham Hotspur keen to make move for Real Madrid's Isco - source

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Real Madrid playmaker Isco in January or next summer, a source has told ESPN FC.

Spurs were linked with Isco in the most recent transfer window, although club sources dismissed the suggestion at that time.

However, on Thursday a source said the club were monitoring the 24-year-old Spain international's situation at the Bernabeu.

A loan deal in January that includes the option of a permanent deal next summer is a possible scenario.

Isco has said he could look elsewhere if he continues to struggle for playing time.

But Isco's agent Paco Alarcon told Italian website "I can assure you we won't consider any offers until next summer."

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is well-stocked with attacking midfield options and Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-Min, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli and Erik Lamela have all impressed this season.

Isco has started just two matches for Real and said last week: "If I've still only made a few appearances by the end of the season, I'll look elsewhere.

"At 24 years of age, I have the right to better myself."
