Chelsea could have been handed a major boost in their battle for Spain and Real Madrid midfielder Isco.
But following seven seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu a summer departure is now expected.
According to the Spanish news outlet El Desmarque, the £45m-rated star is considering a move to Chelsea although is yet to make any firm decisions.
Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich and Premier League giants Manchester City have also been sniffing around.
Nevertheless, the Blues could hold one massive trump card. It’s claimed his partner, Sara Salamo, fancies a switch to London.
Whether Frank Lampard will want to snare the Spaniard after paying £33 million for Morocco international Hakim Ziyech remains to be seen, though.
The talented attacking midfielder will arrive at the end of the term from Ajax.
“I think he has an incredible left foot. He has an elegance about him that can find a pass,” Frank said when asked about his new players.
“I see a player that hopefully can have a big imprint on our team and the Premier League.”
