Arsenal have reportedly ended their interest in Real Madrid playmaker Isco.
The Spain international continues to be linked with an exit from the Bernabeu after falling out of favour under Zinedine Zidane, starting just three La Liga games this term.
With Arsenal desperate for creativity in the middle of the park, the Gunners have been tipped to move for the out-of-favour Isco in January, with the Spain international about to enter the final 18 months of his Real Madrid deal.
However, the Daily Star reports that Isco is keen to join a club competing in the Champions League, and Arsenal have pulled out of the running to sign the playmaker, who is now expected to pen a deal with Juventus.
Isco registered his first goal contribution of the season on Wednesday evening as he came off the bench to assist Karim Benzema in Los Blancos' 2-0 win over Granada.
