HAVING been linked to Julian Draxler, the man seen as the future of the German national team, for months, could it be that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has had a change of heart and now wants to build his next team around the man earmarked to lead Spain for the next decade?

That's what Metro suggests, as it claims that the Gunners chief is preparing a £30m swoop for Real Madrid starlet Isco, who is said to be looking for a way out of the Bernabeu after just a few months in the Spanish capital. The 21-year-old was linked with a move to Manchester City in the summer, but eventually plumped for Madrid, becoming the first signing of new coach Carlo Ancelotti when he arrived from Malaga. However, Metro claims that Isco has become "unhappy" with the manager's training methods and feels he is not progressing as a player.
