Liverpool favourites ahead of Chelsea to sign Isco from Real Madrid
They already boast some of the most talented forwards in Europe, but Liverpool could be set to add more dazzling skill this summer.
The Reds are 3/1 favourites to sign Real Madrid ace Isco, who is still battling to become a first-team regular at the Bernabeu.
Isco has started just 16 times in La Liga this term, but that hasn’t stopped him firing in 10 goals and supplying six assists.
The Spaniard remains firmly a squad player under Zinedine Zidane however, as evidence by the fact he has featured in just three of Real’s 10 Champions League games.
Valued at £30m by transfermarkt.co.uk, Isco could be the signing that launches Liverpool back into Premier League contention.
And with his contract set to expire next summer, Real may well choose to cash in over the next few months.
The Merseysiders are 4/9 to bag a top-four finish and secure a return to Champions League football.
Behind them, we’re 9/2 that Isco moves to Chelsea.
And our traders make those pair the only serious contenders.
Isco came through the youth ranks at Valencia, before moving to Malaga in 2011.
After two years in Andalusia, his impressive performances saw Real come calling with a £25m move in 2013.
