Many Everton fans have been hailing the latest news on their pursuit of Isco as Sport have reported that Carlo Ancelotti has asked to sign him in the January transfer window.
As per the news outlet, the Goodison Park faithful could make a transfer offer of €20m (£18m) to Real Madrid for the Spain international, with his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu set to expire in 2022.
Would Isco be a good signing for Everton?
Nonetheless, Isco would certainly be a shrewd signing by the Merseyside club given his pedigree in the beautiful game.
The 28-year old is a serial winner, having won no fewer than four UEFA Champions League trophies, in addition to two La Liga titles and several other major accolades while playing for the Spanish giants (Transfermarkt).
His winning mentality is certainly a key asset that he can bring off the pitch, but on the pitch he has an eye for goals and assists too, having scored 51 goals and made a further 54 assists in 312 matches over all competitions for Los Blancos over the last eight consecutive terms (Transfermarkt).
Everton fan reaction to Isco news
These EFC supporters hailed the latest news in their pursuit of Isco on Twitter, with one Blue even asking ‘can we give them Sigurdsson as well?’ given some of his poor displays for the Toffees lately, with another fan describing the attacking midfield player as ‘class’:
Can we give them sigurdsson as well

Yes he fits into the Gomes role like a glove and, like James, will be a class above anything currently have. We desperately need to focus on players with mobility thereafter though. Need a RB/winger with pace to add balance

Definitely yes. Need the quality. https://t.co/sfD18vqJ1R

Are you kidding me? I’d take a drunken bloke at the local pub over Sigurdsson and Delph

How is this even a question? It’s like “would you like Everton to sign a player better than what we have?”
