Rangers could now sign their new Mikel Arteta with a move for Isco – a player who is somehow without a club despite his immense talent.
What’s the story?
Well, the Spain international left Sevilla in December after both parties mutually agreed to terminate his contract.
The Times claimed that he was a target for Everton in January, although a move failed to materialise and Isco remains out of contract, which is bizarre given the fact he still has plenty to offer.
Therefore, Rangers should make contact with the 30-year-old to see if he would be interested in a move to Ibrox.
Isco – who has won the Champions League on five occasions – may be tempted by the opportunity to play for another European giant, who can offer him a return to Champions League football next season.
Michael Beale and Ross Wilson must inject more quality into the midfield department at Rangers this summer, and a move for the Spanish playmaker could end up being a masterstroke.
Isco can be a new Mikel Arteta for Rangers
In our view, the free agent with 38 caps for Spain and ten Champions League goals can be a new Arteta for Rangers.
The 40-year-old made 57 appearances for Rangers from 2002 to 2004, playing in a number of midfield positions ranging from an attacking No.10 role to a deep lying No.6 who orchestrated the play.
Isco is also able to operate in a number of different roles across the midfield, and with frustration mounting at the likes of Glen Kamara and John Lundstram, his arrival in Glasgow would be a welcome one.
It is time for Rangers to show some ambition in the transfer market, and for Wilson to prove his worth as Director of Football.
If a swoop for Isco does materialise, it would be a major statement from those at Ibrox, one which shows that they mean business.
