Tottenham Hotspurs still dream with a Spanish playmaker


Tottenham Hotspurs performance in the Champions League is not like it was expected. The Spurs have lost both games at home against Mónaco and Bayer Leverkusen and are now in trouble to get through the knock-out stages. Mauricio Pochettino was very hard with their last game against the German side, where the North London team played a poor game.

Luckily for the Spurs supporters, the team improved in the North London derby against Arsenal and they could earn a point at the Emirates Stadium. However, they are far from the level shown last year, especially at White Hart Lane, and are far from the top of the tables. The injuries of Harry Kane or Erik Lamela have been also very important.

For this reason, Tottenham Hotspurs are still thinking on how to improve the squad in January. And last week they name that came up was Francisco Alarcón, the Real Madrid playmaker. Isco has not played yet any minute in the Champions League, so he could be available for the Last 16, in case Tottenham Hotspurs qualify. According to The Mirror, Pochettino is putting some pressure to get the Spaniard on board.

However, Isco is enjoying a lot of minutes recently, especially when Modric and Casemiro were out of the team. The Croatian is now back, so Isco might go again to the bench, but he has taking advantage of the situation and Isco played some good games. For instance, against Leganés he gave a great assist to Bale in the opener goal.

Apart from Tottenham, Chelsea and Bayern Múnich are also interested in the Spanish player, according to The Mirror and The Express. Antonio Conte side is back on track after thrashing Everton at home. Isco could be the perfect match for Hazard in the midfield and a good replacement for Cesc Fàbregas, who is not enjoying the confidence of the Italian coach.

On the other hand, Carlo Ancelotti always liked Isco. Actually, the best moments of the Malaga born player at Real Madrid were with the Italian coach. Bayern Múnich have not started the season in the best way and the drew at home against Hoffenheim in the last game, so Isco could be an emergency solution for the German team.
