Paul Robinson has tipped Everton to sign Isco after various reports have linked the Real Madrid star with a move to the Goodison Park faithful in the January transfer window.
Indeed, the Merseyside club have reportedly been linked with a loan deal with an option to buy of between €21-25m (£18.9m-£22.5m).
Would Isco be a good signing for Everton?
Robinson believes that Isco could make a move to Carlo Ancelotti’s team in January because of the calibre of the Italian boss and who he would like to play with in the squad:
“It shows how far the club has come in the time Ancelotti has been there,” the former Spurs, Leeds United and England international goalkeeper told Football Insider.
“Everton are a different proposition in the transfer market with Ancelotti in charge.
“The players that he has signed already, especially in the midfield will attract others. Top talent will want to play with the likes of Rodriguez, Allan, Doucoure and Richarlison.
“You can see what Ancelotti is trying to build, trying to do and with the new stadium on the horizon Everton would be a fantastic club to be a part of.”
Isco would be a stunning signing
Indeed, Isco would be nothing short of a great signing for the Toffees. The Spain international is a serial winner, with no fewer than four UEFA Champions League titles to his name, as well as two La Liga trophies and several other major accolades while playing for Los Blancos (Transfermarkt).
His winning mentality is certainly a key asset that he can bring off of the pitch, but on the pitch the 28 year-old has an eye for goals and assists too, having scored 51 goals and made a further 54 assists in 312 games in all competitions for the Spanish giants over the last eight consecutive terms (Transfermarkt).
Isco could thrive under former coach and with ex-teammate
Indeed, Isco may well thrive under Ancelotti given that he has been under his management style before, and the attacking midfield player may also enjoy linking up with his ex-teammate in James Rodriguez.
He would certainly be a statement signing from the Blues should they be able to get this deal over the line.
