Odds slashed on Isco to join Arsenal this summer

Real Madrid’s Isco could be set to join Arsenal this summer, according to the latest Coral odds.

The playmaker is now 9/5 to sign for the Gunners (was 6/1) after a flurry of bets over the last 24 hours.

After losing the Carabao Cup final, it looks like Arsenal need to win the Europa League to salvage their season.

Bringing in Isco would be a huge demonstration of their ambition ahead of next term. The 25-year-old has helped Real Madrid to win three Champions League titles and La Liga in the last four years.

“It’s all doom and gloom at the moment for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger and it looks as though Isco will be their number one target in the summer to turn things around,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

Isco isn’t the only target in Arsenal’s sights either. They’re also even-money to sign Phil Jones from Manchester United and 3/1 to get his defensive partner Chris Smalling too.

“Arsenal were ruthlessly exposed in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City and our punters think they’ll turn to Jones and Smalling in the summer to prove the solution,” added Aitkenhead.
