Wages are unlikely to be a stumbling block in Tottenham's move for Isco.

Spanish newspaper AS reported ahead of deadline day that Tottenham Hotspur were making a move to sign Spanish star Isco.

The attacking midfielder elected to remain with Real Madrid, where his opportunities have since been limited under Zinedine Zidane.

The 24-year-old scored a tremendous goal for Spain against England last night, to highlight what a superb signing he would still be for Tottenham if they pursue their interest.

He has made just five La Liga starts of a possible 11 for Real Madrid, and is yet to figure even as a substitute in any of their four Champions League games.

One obvious concern in Tottenham's pursuit of the player could be how he would fit into their strict wage structure, capped at £100,000 per week, which has caused problems in their attempts to renew deals with Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris, The Mirror report.

Yet Isco is a prime candidate to fit straight in, according to figures from Total Sportek, with his current earning set at £60,000 per week.

This pales in comparison to teammate Cristiano Ronaldo's £288,000 per week.

At Tottenham he could net a tidy pay rise which would fit into their wage structure, and potentially become one of their top earners.

This could boost his sense of belonging and help get the best out of him on the field, which judging by his display for Spain last night, is a mouth watering prospect in an already highly talented Tottenham team.
