Everton could have been given a clear path to sign Real Madrid midfielder, Isco, with Le10 Sport claiming that Sevilla have now dropped out of the race for the Spaniard.
Isco, 28, is said to be on his way out of the Madrid giants after falling down the pecking order once again under Zinedine Zidane. #
Everton are said to be keen on signing him, although reported wages of £130k-a-week may well have a big say on if the Toffees make their move given the likes of James Rodriguez are already on the books.
But Le10’s report claims Everton could now see themselves as having a clear run at signing Isco, with Carlo Ancelotti said to be a big fan of the Spanish star.
Isco has racked up over 300 appearances for Los Blancos. In that time, he’s scored 51 goals and assisted a further 54, according to Transfermarkt.
However, it remains to be seen if the Toffees will make their move for the Madrid ace. Everton have started well this season and are not short of backing.

Like so many players who might make the move to Premier League clubs, the question comes up about where would Isco slot into the Everton team under Carlo Ancelotti.
He’s not going to play wide like James Rodriguez or Richarlison, and Ancelotti hasn’t really deployed a direct number ten as such.
However, you can also never have enough quality players and Isco is certainly that. You don’t play over 300 times for one of the biggest clubs in the world without being a brilliant footballer.
