Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal renew their rivalry once again on January 15, with the two sides meeting in the Premier League.

Milel Arteta’s side have started the season in sensational form and currently sit in first place, five points clear of reigning champions Manchester City.

It has been a different story for Spurs who, after a strong start, have been hindered by inconsistency, although they do currently sit fourth in the table.

Before the two sides meet in North London in a few weeks, it appears that the clubs may be set to battle it out for the signature of a Spanish star.

According to Marca via The Sun, Sevilla are prepared to let attacking midfielder Isco leave the club, which could prompt the two London sides to renew their interest.

Both Arsenal and Spurs were rumoured to be interested in signing the Spaniard when his contract with former club Real Madrid expired at the end of last season, but he ultimately stayed in Spain and joined Sevilla.

Now, the player could now be sold having allegedly fallen out with the club’s director of football, Monchi.

The report claims that the 30-year-old had an argument with Monchi, and the club are now ready to sell the midfielder as they do not tolerate disrespect.

Isco could leave Sevilla less than six months after joining the Andalusian side

Isco spent nine years with Real Madrid after joining from Malaga in 2013, winning five Champions Leagues during his time in the Spanish capital.

He also won the La Liga title three times, as well as a total of 11 other cup competitions.

In 353 matches for Madrid, he scored 53 goals and provided 56 assists.

So far this term, the player has made 19 appearances for Sevilla but he is yet to score in 12 league matches.

Arsenal were interested in the Spanish international over the summer as Mikel Arteta looked to bolster his midfield options, but a move never materialised.

Spurs, meanwhile, were also on the lookout for a midfielder to add to Antonio Conte’s squad, but they ultimately signed a number of other targets including Yves Bissouma from Brighton and Hove Albion.
