- English Premier League side, Chelsea are set to make a move for Real Madrid star, Isco
- Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri has given the green light for Chelsea to acquire the services of Isco
- Isco and Eden Hazard would form an attacking threat if the deal goes through
- Chelsea could face competition from Manchester City for Isco’s signature.
According to reports, Chelsea will submit a £70 million bid to sign Isco Alarcon from Spanish top side, Real Madrid in January. The Spain international has fallen down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu since the appointment of Santiago Solari.
Isco has been restricted to just 1 start and 5 appearances as a substitute under Solari. He was booed by Madrid fans in the 3 nil loss to CSKA Moscow at the Santiago Bernabeu in the UEFA Champions League last week.
The Sun has claimed that the Blues are readying a £70 million offer for Isco in light of a 4-year deal worth £250,000 a week.
According to the report, Chelsea will look to sweeten the deal by offering Isco a hefty sign-on fee. The club is also hoping that the deal can be done in January.
Maurizio Sarri has reportedly endorsed the deal and wants the Spaniard to play alongside Eden Hazard. Manchester City has also been linked with a move for the Spain international.
Meanwhile, Isco is under contract with Real Madrid until 2022 and has a release clause of £629m.

Frank Lampard has already acquired 2 Chelsea youngsters, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori to his Derby County side.
