Isco joined Real Madrid from Malaga in 2013 when Carlo Ancelotti was in charge of the La Liga winners.

The Italian is currently at Everton and after having signed James Rodríguez from Los Blancos in the last window, the midfielder continues to be linked with the Merseyside club.

Last week, Ancelotti claimed he isn’t chasing the Spain international, and despite that, the reports linking to the 28-year-old to the Toffees aren’t going away.

On November 21st, Marca reported Isco feels his cycle at the Santiago Bernabéu is coming to an end and is now looking for a move away from the Madrid based club.

Apart from the Premier League side, Sevilla are also dragged into the mix in the Isco chase.

According to La Razón, the Europa League winners are looking to take Reinier Jesús, who is currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund, on a temporary deal from Real Madrid. When discussing the 18-year-old, Isco gets a mention.

It’s claimed ‘Sevilla does not have this advantage over Everton in the bid for Isco’.

However, the player’s desire to play in La Liga could favour Sevilla in their efforts to take the former Malaga star, at least for the second half of the season. They will try to ‘copy the strategy’ they used for signing Sergio Reguilón on loan from Real Madrid.

With Ancelotti stressing he and Everton are not chasing Isco, it looks like the Goodison Park club is just dragged in to hype up demand for the Real Madrid player.
