The shock in this latest Arsenal transfer rumour is not that Arsene Wenger is a fan of Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez, but that Arsenal are planning to try to sign him this summer with a big money offer of around £35 million.

The talented midfielder, more commonly known as Isco, is currently playing for Real Madrid and doing very well since his €30 million move from Malaga two years ago, and that is why I would be surprised if the Gunners were able to sign him.

A Metro report claims that Wenger is hoping that Real Madrid might just consent to sell the young Spanish star, who with his small compact frame, low centre of gravity and great technical ability is a typical Wenger signing. If the La Liga giants sign either Paul Pogba or Marco Veratti as rumours suggest, then perhaps Isco will find himself surplus to requirements at the Santiago Bernabeu.
