Tottenham are interested in a move for Real Madrid midfielder Isco, amid the ongoing uncertainty around Christian Eriksen.
The Danish midfielder’s contract runs out next summer and so far he has not agreed a new deal at the club.
Indeed, he has made clear since the Champions League final in May that he would prefer to move elsewhere, although that ultimately never happened.
Real Madrid have been continually linked with a move for the Tottenham man, with several reports indicating they may try and get a deal done in January.
That remains to be seen but, should Eriksen end up departing, Spurs have reportedly lined up Isco as his replacement.
El Desmarque say that the Spaniard is one of three players that Madrid could move on in the winter transfer window, and Isco has the most options of anyone.
Tottenham are the ‘main favourite’ for his signature should Real Madrid try and get a move for Eriksen done at the same time. Bayern Munich are also monitoring the situation.
There’s no mention of figures at this point, although given Eriksen would be able to negotiate with Madrid over a summer move at that point, the power would very much be in Madrid’s court.
If Tottenham were able to pull off a deal that saw them essentially swapping Eriksen for Isco, though, it’s one they’d probably take willingly at this stage.
