Arsenal have revived their pursuit of Real Madrid playmaker Isco, according to the Sunday People.

Tom Hopkinson reports that the Spanish giants are trying to secure the 24-year-old to a new deal but the player is weighing up his options.

The Spanish international is said to be not happy about the lack of trust from his manager Zinedine Zidane, and is looking for a team who plays in the Champions League.

Isco has been in and out the starting lineup under Zidane this season but has made 17 appearances and scored two goals, whilst also providing four assists.

Madrid value the player at around £25million, but the Gunners are said to value him around £8million less but would be prepared to include performance related and appearance add-ons into the deal.

Real Madrid are returning from Japan after winning the FIFA Club World Championship, and are currently three points ahead of Barcelona at the top of La Liga with one game in hand. Isco came on as a substitute in the final as Real scraped a 4-2 win after extra time against Japanese side Kashima Antlers.
