Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to swoon over Spain international Isco, after the Real Madrid star played a key role in his country 3-3 World Cup opener against Portugal on Friday night.

Spurs have been linked with the skilful playmaker over the last few years, with the North London outfit reportedly trying to capture him over a number of transfer windows.

Isco enthralled Tottenham fans and the rest of the watching world with a sublime performance for Spain, with the diminutive schemer smashing a rocket shot off the Portugal bar in the first half.

Spurs supporters took to Twitter to salivate over the Spaniard and dream of him in a Lilywhites shirt.

Despite the sentiment that Isco would be a superb signing at Tottenham, the likelihood of this happening is only going to diminish as he excels at the World Cup.

While the former Malaga playmaker had a tough intro at Madrid and was on the fringes of the side, he is now a regular for the European champions.

As such, Tottenham fans will need to content themselves with leering over other rumoured targets as the chances of Isco playing for us any time soon appear miniscule.
