2pm Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Isco loan TALKS, Joan Jordan LATEST, Diego Costa ‘eyed on free’, Omar Rekik news


The Gunners made it back-to-back wins in the Premier League for just the second time this season following the 1-0 victory against Brighton yesterday evening.

Alexandre Lacazette scored the only goal of the game – finding the back of the net just 21 seconds after replacing Gabriel Martinelli at the Emirates.

The result lifted the North London outfit up to 13th in the table ahead of their trip to West Brom on Saturday.

In other news,  Arsenal are reportedly keen on signing Real Madrid playmaker Isco on loan in January.

According to the Telegraph, talks are at an early stage, but Mikel Arteta is desperate to add creativity to his side.

However they face competition from LaLiga side Sevilla as former Real boss Julen Lopetegui looks to be reunited with the player.

Meanwhile, Arteta is also said to be keen on Sevilla maestro Joan Jordan.

Sevilla have put a £55million buy-out clause on the all-action midfielder but they are ready to listen to offers of around £32m.

And finally, Sokratis Papastathopoulos could finally be on his way out of the Emirates with Fenerbahce keen on snapping up the Greek international.

The 32-year-old was left out of Arsenal’s Premier League and Europa League squads for the first half of the season and is edging closer towards the exit door at the Emirates.

Turkish outlet Hurryiet claim the defender, who is out of contract in the summer, has begun talks with Istanbul side Fenerbahce.
