Liverpool linked with 70 million euros move for Isco
Liverpool appear to have a genuine interest in signing Isco.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Liverpool are linked with 70 million euros move for Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco.
The 26-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Spain international was signed by Real Madrid in July 2013 from Málaga for a fee of 30 million euros. The 26-year-old has a contract until 2022 with the club.
Isco has played 253 times for Real Madrid since signing from Málaga, scoring 44 goals and creating 52 assists.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best attacking midfielders in Spain.
As a member of Spain national football team, Isco won 36 caps and he scored 12 goals.
His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
Jürgen Klopp is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
According to Teamtalk (via Don Balon) , “Don Balon claims that the player already has three offers on the table to leave the Bernabeu in January, but it’s reported that the Gunners have attempted to move into pole position for Isco by launching a €50m offer for the player now. Real are in the midst of the biggest crisis they have had in years, with the reigning European champions sixth in LaLiga and seemingly struggling after the summer exits of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane. However, it would appear that they will not baulk at any offer below €70m for Isco, which may prompt a re-think for Emery – while Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp views the playmaker as the perfect replacement for Philippe Coutinho. The Reds are yet to replace the Barcelona star and money appears to be no object for the Anfield outfit after their huge summer spending spree.”
