Liverpool could be lining up a record breaking move for out of favour Real Madrid star Isco, according to a report from Spanish publication OK Diario via Gib Football Show yesterday evening.
Having only featured as a second-half substitute in Real’s lasting outing against Valencia, Isco is thought to be surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu under new manager Santiago Solario and could be set to move on in the summer, with Liverpool keen on his signature.
The 26-year-old attacking-midfielder is already in the prime of his career and you’d have to feel that with his ability to operate as a playmaker, score goals and provide creativity in midfield could make him the perfect final piece of the puzzle in Jurgen Klopp’s Anfield revolution.
Liverpool are likely to face competition from fellow Premier League side Chelsea in any attempts to sign Isco, with the Blues also keen on adding him to their ranks.
The report also links the Reds with a big-money move for Marco Asensio, who finds himself in a similar predicament to Isco at Madrid and having apparently had a £160m bid rejected for him in the summer, it’s understandable why Klopp is again keen on acquiring his services.
A fully fledged Spanish international and a Madrid regular at still only 22, Asensio has the ability and skill to have a long-lasting tenure at Anfield; I’m sure Liverpool fans would salivate at the prospect of either him or Isco trading the Spanish capital for Merseyside.
