Guillem Balague gives latest update on Arsenal’s interest in Isco

Guillem Balague says Arsenal should look at players other than Isco during the summer transfer window

Guillem Balague says Isco could end up joining Arsenal in the summer transfer window – but he feels that the Real Madrid man is not the type of player the Gunners need.

Arsenal are likely to be one of the busiest clubs in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his squad ahead of the 2015-16 campaign.

The north London side have come in for criticism following their disappointing run of form which has left the Gunners winning just one of their last seven games in all competitions.

Isco has long been touted as a possible transfer target for the north London club.

However, Spanish football expert Balague feels that Isco is not the kind of player Wenger should be looking at in the summer transfer window.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Balague said: “Many people will say Isco is a typical Arsenal player.

“He is an elegant player who fails to fulfil his potential, doesn’t score or assist enough and doesn’t work hard enough without the ball. For me, he is not a player Arsenal need.

“That doesn’t mean he won’t go to the Emirates, the transfer market can serve up anything, I just feel he is a not a player for Arsenal.”
