According to a recent report by Fichajes, West Ham United are really interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder Isco on a free transfer next summer. Isco’s contract with Los Blancos ends in the summer of 2022 and it is believed that the Spaniard is not going to renew it. As many as four clubs are interested to secure the services of Isco next summer and the Hammers are reported to be one of them as they look to bag the Spaniard on a free transfer. Since there seems to be no shortage of interest in the 29-year-old’s services, Isco looks set to leave the La Liga giants at the end of this season.
Isco Out Of Favour At Real Madrid
The Spanish international joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 as one of the most exciting youngsters around at that time from Malaga. Isco enjoyed success in his early days at the club as he played some crucial parts in Real Madrid’s league and Champions League wins. Since the last four seasons, the Spaniard has fallen down the pecking order in the squad under Zinedine Zidane and now Carlo Ancelotti. In the last 3 seasons, he has only started 34 league games for the club scoring only 5 goals in that period. His form has dipped massively and as a result, he was in and out of the squad most of the time.
This season the situation has been no different with the 29-year-old staring only 3 games in the league. Los Blancos have still rejected all the offers for the Spaniard in these years but now with Isco’s contract coming to an end, it looks more likely that he will leave the club on a free transfer this summer.
Right Choice For Moyes?
The Hammers recently signed Nikola Vlasic as an attacking midfielder last summer but he has struggled to make an impact in the squad since his arrival. David Moyes has the likes of Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma as attacking options but both of them have not been consistent enough, thus making Bowen do all the work himself in the attacking third. Bringing in another player who can add more creativity and versatility from the midfield will benefit Moyes in the long run.
Isco has shown his true form in his early days at Real Madrid where he has the ability to be a talisman. When on song, the Spaniard is very difficult to stop as he has amazing close control and the ability to progress with the ball and create chances. Moving to West Ham will probably help the Spaniard revive his career by getting regular minutes on the pitch.
