According to reports, Chelsea will submit a £70 million bid to sign Isco Alarcon form 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 have 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 are 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 have 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.
