Seville midfielder Isco looks set to join Josip Juranovic at Union Berlin. The German side are closing in on the decorated Spanish central midfielder as they plot an unlikely assault on the Bundesliga title.
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Isco will join the German club on a free transfer after agreeing upon personal terms with the club.

Union Berlin sit in second place in the Bundesliga as the popular side look to gain Champions League football. Just a few years ago, the club were battling for promotion to the Bundesliga.
Isco joins the former Celtic defender in a move that signifies an attempt to consolidate their place at the top end of the table.
The Croatian Internationalist joined Celtic from Legia Warsaw in the summer of 2021 for just £2.5m but leaves after making 52 appearances, scoring twice and winning two trophies.
It appears that the Bundesliga side have agreed to pay an up front fee of £7.5m with £2.5m in add-ons. The manager spoke about Juranovic wanting to maximise his career and playing in a Top 5 league with a hike in his wages will certainly have influenced the decision.
