The Real Madrid play-maker is a reported transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur.

Spain's midfielder Isco celebrates after scoring a goal during a friendly football match between Spain and Argentina at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid on March 27, 2018.

According to a report from Football.London, Tottenham will 'certainly' be interested in signing Isco this summer if Real Madrid decide to sell him, but he might be out of the north London outfit's price-range.

The 27-year-old would be a great addition for Spurs.

He joined Madrid in the summer of 2013 for around £23 million, and he has gone on to rack up 48 goals and 52 assists in 277 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos.

 

The Spain international can play in midfield, on either wing or in the number 10 position, and would bring some much needed creativity and guile to Tottenham's setup.

Isco would be an excellent replacement for Christian Eriksen, should the Dane leave Spurs this summer, but he won't come cheap.

Spanish media outlet AS claims that Madrid will demand around €80 million (£71 million) for the 27-year-old, and that might prove to be just too steep for Tottenham, unless they receive mega money for Eriksen.

According to a report from the Mirror, Spurs will demand £130 million for the Denmark international this summer, and should they get anywhere near that fee, Isco will then become a real possibility for the north London outfit.

And what a signing he would be for Tottenham.
