Desperate Arsenal turn to Isco

Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco could move to Arsenal this winter to save their season, Manchester United may be able to loan out Phil Jones to Derby County, and Jesse Lingard is wanted by Sheffield United in January. Meanwhile, Liverpool are keen on Birmingham teenager Calum Scanlon to strengthen their youth side.

Arsenal interest in Isco

Arsenal are having an absolutely dreadful season so far under Mikel Arteta, and Spanish newspaper Marca reports that the Spaniard is interested in fellow countryman Isco. The 28-year-old attacking midfielder is wanted to provide creativity to a team that could be on the cusp of a relegation battle, having fallen out of favour at Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane.

***: Arteta is clearly a bright man and there is probably a benefit in the club showing patience with the manager. Giving him Isco might give the squad a lift, and if they bring him in on loan then it could be done relatively cheaply. If the club are not going to give Mesut Ozil another chance, then they need to find an attacking player to offer a similar threat.

Derby move for Jones

Former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney could be in for a former Old Trafford teammate, defender Phil Jones, reports the Mirror. The 28-year-old has struggled to get games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and Rooney wants him in the Championship. However, he will face competition from Premier League sides Burnley and West Brom, but Rooney would offer him a chance to get game time on loan.

Sheffield United want Jesse Lingard

The Sun claims that Premier League strugglers Sheffield United are looking to Jesse Lingard in order to revitalise their season. The 28-year-old forward is wanted by Chris Wilder on loan in January, and his parent club are keen to get him off the books as he has little chance of playing regularly. United would be prepared to subsidise his wages in order to get some of his salary of the books.

Liverpool close in on Scanlon

Liverpool are set to sign a player for their youth team, according to the Daily Mail. They have made a bid of around £500,000 for Calum Scanlon, Birmingham City’s 15-year-old midfielder. He would follow in the footsteps of Jude Bellingham as a midlands youngster who goes onto a bigger club at an extremely young age.
