Report: Liverpool handed boost as door opens for £85.8m summer swoop

Premier League side Liverpool appear to have been handed a boost over the possibility of signing Real Madrid midfielder Isco in the summer.

Calciomercato claims Juventus and Liverpool are exploring the possibility of signing the Spaniard, after he was left out of the squad for Wednesday’s clash with Barcelona.

Isco hasn’t made a La Liga start for Los Blancos since January 16th, as he continues to grow increasingly more frustrated with his role under Santiago Solari.

The above report from the Italian publication claims that Juve and Liverpool have been placed on alert over the chances of signing the 25-year-old and that ‘his future has never looked so far away from Madrid’.

Isco is valued at around €100 million (£85.8 million), according to Spanish publication Don Balon, and in today’s market, that would represent decent value for money for the Reds.

The midfielder would fit perfectly into Liverpool’s system under Jurgen Klopp, and he would provide the German with another world-class position in the attacking midfield department.

If the report from Calcio Mercato is to be believed, Isco would surely be seen as Philippe Coutinho’s belated replacement, and Liverpool fans would surely love to see the Spain international at Anfield next season.
