There is no doubt that Isco will take Chelsea’s midfield to a different level.
According to the report, “Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is eyeing Real Madrid midfielder Isco this month. The Daily Star says Lampard is believed to be keen on bringing in Isco who has had an up and down career at the Bernabeu. He has never been able to consistently deliver on the pitch with high expectations on his shoulders. Isco has been used little by coach Zinedine Zidane this season and is reported in the Spanish press that Chelsea have offered £45million to entice him away. While Chelsea is keen, Zidane has used Isco more in the past month and it will not be easy to prise him away.”
