Real Madrid's Isco, a creative, play making midfield who is an adept passer but also an outstanding dribbler in tight spaces is the hottest commodity on the market for this January transfer window. The Mirror and Daily Mail both report that Isco who opted to join Real Madrid over Manchester City in 2013 could reunite with his former Malaga Manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Isco certainly could help alleviate the creativity issue in the final third that is a bi-product of Samir Nasri's long-term injury and David Silva's poor form since returning to full match fitness last month.

Elsewhere among title contenders Arsenal have been linked with players all over Europe while Leicester City appear poised to close a deal with Birmingham City for Demarai Gray, who is one of the best young English wingers. Gray has been a strong performer for Brum in the Championship the last few seasons and could add critical depth to a thin Foxes squad.
