Spurs tipped to secure signing of 26-year-old midfield meastro

Tottenham Hotspur have been tipped by Paul Merson to secure the signing of Spanish midfield maestro Isco to add even more quality to Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield.

Spurs were under pressure ahead of the start of this season after the club’s failure to make any major signings before the summer transfer window came to a close.

For much of the summer, Tottenham were rumored to be on the verge of doing business with Real Madrid in a deal which would have seen Gareth Bale return to his former club.

With that move failing to happen, Spurs are being linked with another Madrid star in Isco, whom several English clubs have been chasing for the last couple of seasons.

It might take a huge sum of money to even tempt the Spanish giants to sell their playmaker but Paul Merson believes it is worth going for Isco anyway.

“They talk about Isco leaving Real Madrid. I think he fits Tottenham.” said Merson

“I think Tottenham should be a team going for him. A top quality player, top standard. They never go in for that kind of player.”
