According to recent reports, Everton are keeping tabs on Real Madrid midfielder Isco ahead of a potential January move.
The report by Mundo Deportivo (via Sport Witness) claims that Everton are one of the clubs interested in taking the £18 million-rated midfielder from Real Madrid, with the 28-year-old said to be keen on a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu in search of more regular game time.
So far this season, the Spain international has started just three times in La Liga under Zinedine Zidane, playing a total of just 344 minutes over his 10 appearances in the Spanish top flight.
And, Spanish publication AS (via Sport Witness) back up Mundo Deportivo’s claim that Carlo Ancelotti’s side are keen on the midfielder, stating that Everton and Sevilla are both interested in making a move for the former Malaga man, whom Andres Iniesta has previously described as an ‘incredible‘ talent.
Do you think Isco would be a good signing for Everton?
Transfer Tavern Take
Although his form had slightly tailed off over recent weeks before his injury, it would be difficult to make the argument that James Rodriguez, who Everton signed from Real Madrid on a free transfer last summer, has not been a good addition to Ancelotti’s side.
As such, this could potentially lead to Isco being convinced that Everton is indeed a team he could join to pick up more minutes, as well as somewhere where he could improve his reputation in the game once again.
