Tottenham are set to renew their interest in Isco this coming January, reports the Mirror.
Spurs spent the second half of the summer being linked with the Real Madrid man, but a move never materialised.
As Los Blancos ponder giving the player a new deal, Mauricio Pochettino is ready to take advantage of his uncertain future – but there’s every chance Isco may have changed his mind in recent weeks.
The playmaker has finally been allowed to put a run of games under his belt, which could make him hesitant about leaving the Bernabeu.
With only 18 months left on his current deal, though, something needs to be sorted soon.
Pochettino admitted after the Lilywhites’ 1-1 draw with Leicester – their third league draw in a row – that Christian Eriksen needs to be more proactive going forward, while Dele Alli and Erik Lamela have also been struggling to create.
All that has piled the pressure on new signing Vincent Janssen, the striker scoring just twice – both penalties – since arriving from AZ Alkmaar in the summer.
Spurs desperately need Harry Kane back – which is expected at some point this week – but for him to be at his most effective, they ideally need another creative midfielder, at the very least to give Eriksen some competition.
