It's easy to say 'Poor Isco' after the impending arrival of James Rodriguez looks to push the Spaniard further down the Real Madrid midfielder/forward queue, but he surely knew what he was getting himself into when he joined.

However, Real's loss might well be Liverpool's gain, with the Daily Star going big on claims that Brendan Rodgers has made an approach to loan him for a year. Isco made 46 appearances for Real last season, but the arrival of Rodriguez and Toni Kroos must just make him shake his head in sadness.

So Liverpool fans, ready for some Isco dancing?

After the apparent disappointment of missing out on Sami Khedira (although is a deal really dead in the water yet?), we rather thought that Morgan Schneiderlin would be Arsenal's second-choice midfield purchase. We forgot about William Carvalho, of course.

The Daily Telegraph not only claim that Arsene Wenger has had a £24million bid rejected (because the fee was to be spread over two payments), but also intends to go back with an improved offer for the Sporting Lisbon midfielder.

Given that Carvalho's agent is a certain Jorge Mendes, it appears that hardball will very much need to be played if Arsenal are to land a midfielder that has just two seasons at the top level under his belt for an acceptable price.

Talking of Schneiderlin, and perhaps our Morgan-radar was just slightly off-kilter. He's still heading to North London, but it is White Hart Lane that shall be his final destination. That's if the Daily Mirror have got this one bob on.

The paper do report Arsenal interest in Schneiderlin, but state that the Frenchman would prefer a move to Spurs to play under former manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Mirror also state that Michel Vorm to Spurs is also a done deal. Because if there are two areas in which Spurs look fine it's central midfield and goalkeeper. Top work.

Thank goodness they've at least brought a left-back in. Ben Davies should be announced in the next few days.

Leicester want to pair Sporting Lisbon's Islam Slimani with £7million Brighton marksman Leonardo Ulloa up front as they return to the top flight... Steve Bruce is stepping up his bid to make Tottenham left-back Danny Rose his fourth summer signing for Hull... Tottenham are trying to buy the latest 'new Luka Modric' - Hajduk Split teenage attacking midfielder Nikola Vlasic - in a £3million deal... West Ham are planning loan moves for Inter Milan midfielder Saphir Taider and Malaga full-back Vitorino Antunes... Micah Richards wants a loan move after clubs baulked at Manchester City's £7million asking price.

@seamy82, Wow, Arsenal buy a couple of expensive players and suddenly the fans think the owners are following Real Madrid's original galactico project. Maybe we struggle to attract world class players, but we can turn a £22m player into a £75m player. Whereas I'm sure Ozil isnt worth the £40m price tag Arsenal paid for him anymore after his mediocre debut season, he even ended up playing average for Germany, nothing like his magical debut 4 years go.
